Sounds pretty good to me. You might want to take the opportunity to update your Exchange server to SP2 (also remember to service pack the BES for the sake of the ESM). As you're running service pack 4 for BES you'll be free of the bugs Ex 2K3 SP2 created!
Your only other change is the move from MSDE to SQL which you seem to have accounted for. Obviously export your user list from the current BES and import it to the fresh install. You've already thought ahead with the bit most people miss out on which is making sure both SRP keys are NOT live simultaniously.
You may need to run the handheldcleanup.exe utility after setting the new BES live to verify the migrated users can connect to the mailboxes but I doubt it. I tend to do this as a standard thing whenever migrating users.
