I have a project that I have developed in SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) 2008.  Problem is I need to move it to SSIS 2005 now (we have decided to hold off using SSIS 2008 at the moment).

Do I have to manually reverse engineer the entire project, or is there some way I can save the project in such a way that it can be read by SSIS 2005.

Other than reverse engineering I am afraid there is no other way. You cannot expect SSIS 2005 to have upward compatibility.

I accept what you have said as being the current state of the MS world, but your premise of not expecting back converting capabilities is just wrong.  

You can back convert excel spreadsheets, word documents, and many other save sets in other MS applications.  I think it is ridiculous that you can not back convert SSIS projects.  This will keep me and my organization from migrating to SQL Server 2008 for a good while.  

From what I have been able to google and find out, MS is seriously thinking of adding back converting functionality because of issues like this.  Sure, you may loose some functinoaltiy, but to have to completely reengineer a perfectly good solution is HORRIBLE!!!
