It'd be pretty safe going the other way (ie. 93 octane with a 91 octane map) because rich is better than lean, but probably not the best idea vise-versa.

octane doesn't have much to do with the AFR. the AFR won't change (much) with different gas. what does change is if the car knocks or not, at a certain RPM it might need more fuel to prevent knock, even though it technically isn't lean, or at least any more lean then before.
