There should be no issues but i would hold off on changing the domain to 2008 (R2?) Native until you get Exchange migrated.

You should be fine 2008 is supported with exchange 2010   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff728623(EXCHG.141).aspx

I'd probably get the 2008 up make sure everything is working/healthy then go to the next project (exchange)
