Porting a Google Play app

We are bringing an app to the Amazon appstore from Google Play. I know that we need to switch from Google's IAB to Amazon's In-App Purchasing API. But, for simplicity's sake, we'd like to leave the Google Play code in the binary so that we don't have to branch our source. To be clear, the Amazon version of the app would never take the Google Play IAB branch of code. Would we encounter any problems in submission if we go this route instead of actually commenting out or removing all Google Play IAB references?

Will your app get rejected if it has code for Google IAP, but that code never gets called on an Amazon device? At the moment, we have code for Google IAP in the app (not called on Amazon devices, and at the moment, not even called on our public google builds -- only internal test builds), and plan to add support for Amazon IAP later, but just support the free mode on Amazon in the meantime.

We're trying to have a single build/binary, and also be mindful of the various app store rules. We're hoping that we don't end up needing one custom build per ecosystem - a mess of extra engineering/QA/etc.
