Adopting a branch as trunk

I think it works, but just to be sure....

I have a project with the following layout


In prj/trunk there is the "1.0" line of development.
In prj/branches/2.0 there is the "2.0" line of development.

At some point in time I what to let the trunk adopt the 2.0 line of
development (i.e stop development on prj/branches/2.0 and continue on

Is it safe to do the following ?
svn delete http://myserver/repos/prj/trunk
svn copy http://myserver/repos/prj/branches/2.0

What happens if I have a wc in sync with the old prj/trunk and I issue a
svn update .
after this "switch" at repos level ?

I have made a little test on a sample repository an it seems to be OK.

Is there anyone who has adopted this practice ?
Is there anyone who has experienced pb with this practice ?
