Is there a safe migration path from SBS 2003 Premium (32 Bit) to SBS 2011 Premium (64 Bit)?   Is there a "step-by-step" technet article on this?

That takes you to SBS 2011 Standard and not SBS 2011 Premium.  Is that an issue?   The SBS 2003 is also Premium, if that makes any difference...

I guess the only additional feature is SQL on both the Editions of premimum servers.  

If you want to install sQL on to a seperate server then its ok otherwise SBS 2011 will also have SQL installed

You may also want to consider doing a Swing Migration. It perserves more then Microsoft's standard migration method. You can keep the same server name and such. It's available here: http://www.sbsmigration.com. Myself and many others here have used the process before.

Check out my migration guide here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/SBS_Small_Business_Server/A_4234-Migrate-Small-Business-Server-2003-to-Small-Business-Server-2011.html

There is no need to pay for a swing migration kit, you will also find it's not a supported migration method.
