Migrate managed folder policies to 2010

I have a 2007 Exchange environment where I use managed folders. It looks like this:

-> Managed folders
   -> 2 Year Retention
   -> 7 Year Retention
   -> Permanent Retention

We apply a retention policy based on wat they say ie, 2 year moves items from there to deleted in 2 years.

I have ported the retention policies to tags in 2010 but how do you apply them to the folders without user intervention when I start migrating mailboxes. I realize I need to revamp how we do compliance but I don't want everyones items in manged folders to be deleted by a default policy tags on personal foders in the mean time.

Check out this Technet article about migrating from Managed folders in 07 to retention policies/tags in 2010
step by step instructions at the bottom

According to the doc, there is no way to migrate the 2007 policies via EMC, however I find  is an option in EMC to "port" the policies. Should I delete those that I ported and redo them via shell or was that a feature added in SP1 and ok to use?

Also, there is a section that states:
"After you apply the retention policy to a user and the Managed Folder Assistant runs, the managed folders in the user's mailbox become unmanaged."

That statement has me confused.

After going through the doc and doin a migration, the folders got the policy tags applied. Not sure what the "unmanaged" comment was all about.
