I'm NOT a ZFS expert, but I think it should be OK as long as you don't  
upgrade the v14 pool.  OpenSolaris won't upgrade pool versions  
automatically, so this shouldn' t be a problem.

I'm assuming this is a normal file copy, here; if you're trying to use  
'zfs send' and 'zfs receive' I think you'll run into difficulty.
