Currently not possible because you cannot put Exchange 2013 into an existing 2003, 2007, or 2010 Exchange Environment (I also don't think 2013 can coexist with 2003 - I think you've have to upgrade Exchange (Migrate really) to 2007 or 2010 first and then do another migration to 2013.

NOTE: you will be able to migrate to 2013, but 2007 and 2010 require updates that are not yet available so right NOW you cannot do it.
