Yes (IIRC the voiced palatal stop is [j\]).

Well, look at French which has had the change [k] > [tS] / _[a] (and then [tS]>
[S], hence cattus>chat [Sa]). So indeed I'd say frontness matters more than
height. Not though that this change happened way after the palatalisation of
velar consonants in front of [e], [i] and [j].
