How to remove EBS 2008 from farm?

I have today the three server in EBS 2008 on my network. But I just find them frustrating and have fixed licenses on normal servers instead.

Now I wonder how I can remove all functionality that is windows essential business server  2008?
I have already taken some steps like installing a separated server with its own ip as gateway so nothing runs through security server. I have installed a Windows Server 2008 R2 with Exchange Edge for mail flow. So what I have left is the Management server and the Messaging server. I have installed other domain controllers running normal Windows Server 2008 R2 so I have redundancy. Im afraid that if I just dcpromo the Management server that it will still use things like ebs licenes mode etc. Exchange I guess I will just install a new server and then in the same run upgrade to exchange 2010 as well.

Is there anyway to assure that you remove all EBS functionality?

Install the new software you want to use, migrate all data to the new servers, remove the machines from the domain by deinstallation of the software on them and disjoining. No functionality should be left over after that.
