Default Bailing Out Of A RV6

The question has arisen as to whether or not it is possible to open the canopy while in flight. Specifically, can the slider on a RV6A be slid open while in flight in order to bail out? Has anyone had a slider open on them accidentally? Has anyone bailed out of a RV?
This all has to do with aerobatics and whether or not it's possible to bail out...I mean we all have parachutes-right? :-)
