1.6 dump => 1.5 load => dump => 1.8 load : any issues expected?

Hello,

We are planning to migrate our internal SVN servers. We are currently
running on svn 1.6 on the server. We will get new infrastructure with SVN
1.5 server setup in the short term and are planning to upgrade to 1.8 at a
later date. We are planning to do a dump from our current 1.6 server, load
it into the new 1.5 server, continue working for a few months, dump again
from the 1.5 server, upgrade to 1.8 (maybe already 1.9 by that time) and
load the repos again. Ofcourse we would prefer to dump from 1.6 and load in
1.8 immediately, no need to convince me of that, but that won't happen.

My question now is: will we lose any data / functionality due to the load
in and subsequent dump from SVN 1.5? Any difference for the commits that
were done in the past against 1.6 vs the commits that will be done in the
transition period against 1.5?

Kind regards,

Pieter-Jan
