Possible, but you would expect crypto research to be
well compartmented from legal, sigint and offensive ops
that appear to be the sole scope of the known docs.
If research does posess a break, maintaining that secret
while producing politically/operationally useful decrypts
would be harder to manage.

You can always bury / escrow multiple copies in multiple locations
known only to you in case you need them later. Hard to
believe this was not forseen and done given history of media
with prior leaks.
