XF 1.5 Incremental vb import: Photopost to XFMG. Stupid?

    As I need to have various essential forum functionality created first, I cannot go live with XenForo just yet. Meanwhile I am stuck with old vbulletin and its addons. I wonder if it would be possible to replace some addons with xenforo addons and later migrate the forum?

    In fact I am already doing that with TaigaChat. I have just hidden all things that are relate to accounts or forums.
    But there is not much of a problem if I need to delete the entire install and start over.
    Now, I am thinking if it would be incredibly stupid to replace Photopost Pro with XFMG?

    For this to work I would need to do an incremental import of forum accounts without any forum node imports. (retain ID's) After the initial forum account import I would import PP to XFMG. Then later when I migrate the vb forum overwrite the accounts with new data and import the forums while retaining ID's. Could this approach work or is this just asking for trouble?

    Incremental imports like that aren't really possible, but yes I do think this would be asking for trouble.
