I think that's how it already should work at the moment.
As long as you're watching live TV, you can just switch as normal.
As soon as you rewinded, you are in replay mode (just like if you
started watching from your list of recordings) and up and down
should not change the channel(*).
Did you change the key settings for replay mode?

That by the way is a little concern I've got with enabling the
rewind button from live TV. You would change from live watching
mode to replay mode, possibly without noticing it.

If there's no live buffer, there wouldn't be anything to rewind into anyway... 
:o)

(*) and when switching, the redording is kept if the appropriate VDR setting 
for instant recordings is set.
