I don't know enough to say either way. I'd strongly suggest talking to
Red hat, as you have a subscription, and ask them for advice. It might
cost a bit, but I am certain it will save you trouble and money in the
long wrong.

Alternatively, use some spare machines to mock-up the current cluster
and then test-upgrade. It might work flawlessly, I genuinely don't know.
I do know that a good attempt was made at on-wire compatibility, I just
don't know if it's actually been used in production, so I was erring on
the side of caution.
