You left out the hard part which is ensuring that 'data' does not 
conflict with any new files from the 6.x install, which anything under 
/etc or /var most likely will, and then making sure that the parts of 
'data' that you need from those conflicting files are added back in a 
compatible way, which will generally be non-trivial.
