Altering/Changing the system after calibration

Hello.
My question relates to the calibration correction of a VNA when calibrated with, let's say cable X, but measures/used with cable Y having additional phase accumulation/deviation from the former (X) of say Phi (degrees).
Is this possible?
If not, what is the maximum deviation allowed from cable X and cable Y (in terms of phase), to yield good accuracy (say not to extend above 10% from the measurement used with cable X with respect to the measurement of cable Y)?

Many thanks,
Itzik
