The history is definitely why I'm upgrading -- I keep three years worth. But I only have a handful of targets; my repository DB is only 7GB.
That's why my current plan is to do a 2-system upgrade. I have notes that the repo data will get "shuffled" over from the Grid to the Cloud a little at a time, but I need to research that more.
But I'm still trying to get the test upgraded from 10gR3 to 10gR5 -- ORA-4031s galore! And my shared pool was >512MB! But that's another story... :)
