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.
