Doesn't the application have such a tool? Does y run with 10g or x with 11g?

When I've faced such a complex migration, I've usually done it in a number of steps and backups, so any step can be restarted. Since major metadata changes usually means major data updates, for me it often makes sense to go noarchivelog and depend on cold backups, then switch to archivelog and backup at end (or beginning, depending on your point of view).
