I would; always take new backups both before and after a significant change in infrastructure - a functional level change, to me, would qualify for that.

Domain functinal level is something related to domain controller version should be present in domain, also it matters in group membership..

Regarding AD Restore.. for server 2003 functional level you can restore the system state only with 2003 server or domain controller.

Please let me know if you have any questions..

Cheers,
Prem
