Nope, apply makes the modifications permanent in the mesh, while they 
are in the modifier stack, their parameters
can still be changed.

In the text you quoted me above I meant "commit"=apply to make a 
distinction between add and apply,
"add" adds a modifier to the modifier stack, "apply" commits the 
modifications to the mesh.

This is actually one of the flaws in the current decimate modifier, you 
have to add the modifier, set the ratio
of decimation and then apply it in order to see the result, if its not 
what you had in mind, you have to undo
and try again.
