I believe that's the best thing to do, yes.

I think that we need to document that process.  It will at least involve
a DB change (which we should probably put into the upgrade scripts).
Then I assume that the user would need to destroy any existing system
VMs, perhaps including the VRs.

Also - we need a place to host the new system VMs.  Does Citrix (someone
that can represent Citrix) want to continue to donate that download
location?  Or do we want to circle back to infra@ (referencing the old
agreement from legal-discuss@) to ask for a place?
