I just did that very thing.
There is no problem at all.
once servers are going go to the snap in and then make sure that the domain level is 2003.
it all will work as I have had it working for 2 years now

There is no problem at all just mae sure that you run ADPREP /DOMAINPREP and ADPREP /FORESTPREP to update the Schema for a WIndows 2003 R2 domain controller.

You don't need to change the functional levels.
