If you start with snv134b as the base, you can obviously update to
Solaris Express, being careful not to change the version of any pools.
Then one could roll back to snv134b and install OI when it becomes
available. However you'd lose any changes to the root pool in the
interim, so I was wondering if it would be feasible to do a sort of
sideways "update" to OI from Solaris Express 2010.11.

Answering my own question, it would seem to be quite unlikely from
what I've read unless Oracle releases the sources for snv151a. We'll
simply have to keep careful notes on root pool changes :-).
