Our servers are also W2008R2 and we use Exchange 2010 SP1. We raised to W2008R2 domain level some time ago without any problems. You might have a look at this AD support matrix for Exchange 2010 under section Supported Active Directory Environments.

AD recycle bin might be quite helpful. In some environments the DFS changes come to mind. This Technet article Understanding AD Functional Levels seems to be comprehensive about the different levels.
