Moving jails from one computer to another

I'm curious if anyone has comments on moving a jail environment from
one computer to another.  Not having actually tried it yet, it would
seem to be possible given:

Both computers:
   are the same arch (i386, in my case).
   are running the same kernel and userland (e.g., FreeBSD RELENG_6_1)
   have identical jail environments (e.g., sysutils/ezjail)

Of course, minor modifications may need to be made for IP addresses
and such.

It would seem this scenario would be good for developing things like
web-based applications on a development server, then deploying the
final product to a production server.

Comments, thoughts, criticisms welcomed.
