Of course. But it will work better than running the 4.x based system
with a 6.x kernel. That's been my experience when I've been forced to do
similar things at least.
Anyway, please remember that the last steps in your procedure still apply:
4. Setup jail inside new system, which will run old system.
5. Now I have all services running, and I can transfer it to new
system one by one quietly.
So you should still move over your services to a fresh system before
