Live migration

I didn't see this asked anywhere....

Is it possible to complete a "Live" migration between servers without waiting for the Root DNS servers to refresh? What I would like to do is set-up a new server with FC5 and Pro. Get everything installed and set-up. Then move the domains from GPL to Pro. Upgrade the existing server to FC5 and Pro and move the domains back. I know it sounds weird to move the domains twice, but the current server is quite powerful and I don't have a need to buy a new one. The thing I am worried about is the DNS. Will VMin Pro set-up a forwarder so there is little downtime? Or is this process going to be too much of a PITA?

Thank you for your time

Ok, I am scrapping this idea, but I would like to know if anyone has done something similar to this....

Upgrade FC2 -> FC5, keeping VMin GPL. When everything is up and running, backup the domains, then upgrade to Pro. I know this isn't a supported method, but I really want to buy VMin Pro and implement it with the least amount of downtime as possible.
