Could "No quemes las naves" be used in the context of warning someone against severing ties with someone in case you need something from them later?

Or does "Quemar las naves" refer only to deliberately putting yourself in a situation where you must succeed or suffer the consequences? E.g. Having burned its ships, an invading army must now conquer or die.
