We did this, and a day later it appears successful.

I am still fuzzy on how schema "changes" propagate when you edit the 
schema tables directly and am unsure if the drain/restart rain dance was 
strictly necessary, but it felt safer. (Obviously even if I was sure 
now, that would not be behavior to count on, and I hope not to need to 
do this gain.)
