The answer is as most times in life: Yes, with a big but:
The saved variables are global, so yes you can, but:
1. You have to wait until the other addons are loaded. One way to do this is to make your addon
## OptionalDependsOn: in the manifest.txt.
2. Reading is ok, but for changing properties, you have check what the code does, which normally change them.
