Close to implausible, perhaps? That would indeed be the case, unless you truly are longing for a major workout, either with mergemaster et al, or both with mergemaster and the ports. The former case, which assumes you don't have many ports installed, is often a no-brainer: install a fresh system. The latter case may be somewhat more complicated: install a fresh system for the least effort on your side, or go the update route if you need to keep your system up and usable during the process. I should note that I always took the update trail, and never regretted it afterwards (well, if only so slightly). For instance, my workstation lived through 5.2.1-R, 6.2-R, RELENG_6, and finally RELENG_7, all with the aid of cvsup. The process is straightforward, well-designed and easily executed (thanks to the developers), but problems often pop-up with ports (especially such messy ones as Gnome, etc) which take lots of time to correct. So, in summary, a sane person should probably go with clean system update.
