BIX upgrade steps from v 2.3 to v.7.1

We have PRPC 5.5 and BIX 2.3 (Extract jobs runs from standalone application ANT scripts using Extract rule XML's).
We are planning to upgrade to 7.1.9 and BIX 7.1 (which comes with distribution package). What are the steps involved for BIX upgrade ... Can anyone help please ...?
I read BIX user guide and though it says about new installation, for upgrade i comeup with following steps ... Is it make sense ? i mean any steps missing or any step is unnecessary ..? please suggest.

A. Import BIX Package and Validate Extract rules

  1. Unzip the BIXDistributionImage.zip file to a directory.
  2. Log in to Pega 7 Platform using an operator ID with Administrator privileges, Import pxBIX_ 07.10.01.zip. Package.
  3. Add the BIX ruleset to your base ruleset version in the Application rulesets list
  4. Verify application Extract rule for correctness
  5. Recreate an XML representation of an Extract rule

B. Reset up stand-alone command-line Environment

  1. Download the BIX distribution archive to and expand the archive into a directory.
  2. Configure a JVM environment with access to Pega 7 Platform JAR files and the appropriate database driver files.
  3. Configure prconfig.xml, prbootstrap.properties, and prlogging.xml provided in the configuration directory of BIX distribution to specify source Pega 7 Platform database and target database, Split schema variables setup. (We can refer existing BIX config file for this).
  4. Regenerate pegarules.keyring file if required
  5. Copy Extract rule xml to appropriate path
  6. Validate ANT build file with that of sample build file provided in distribution package

Is steps A.4 , A.5 , B.4, B.5, B.6 really required or i can skip and use existing ..? please suggest ..
