There is at least one precedent where a company has most of its code
in CVS and is not ready to migrate yet (nor will be in the next couple
of years, just my opinion).
I am talking about The Eclipse Foundation (http://eclipse.org)

Their response to the trend was to set up a subversion repository that
is used by some subprojects and runs in parallel with the main CVS one.

I think that that would be the best solution for your company. I do not see
any benefits of migrating to CVS. Maybe you should ask one of CVS/CVSNT
forums for an alternate opinion.
