Sorry for the delay, but at least I've been having trouble parsing the
original request -- I was sort of hoping that someone else would do a
better job with it.

I can give you Ashanti and Zulu details, but I don't think they'll
actually answer any of these questions.

There's no change.

What kind of "migrations?"  SUNWluu contains part of the Live Upgrade
code, which is used to create alternate system images ("boot
environments"), switch among them, and perform upgrades of inactive

I know of no way to do a "migration" between versions of Solaris by
detaching and reattaching a zone.  I don't see how that's possible.
The source and destination of such a move need to be the same version
and patch level, as best I understand.  See PSARC 2006/030.

The only upgrade mechanisms I know about here are standard upgrade
(which involves shutting the system down, booting from the install
media, and doing an off-line upgrade) and Live Upgrade (which makes a
copy of the system, upgrades that while the system continues to run,
then switches from one image to the other).

In progress ... but it doesn't address any of your questions.
