Given that all additions went into texmf.local you won't loose anything 
when you upgrade to teTeX 3. A problem could be MAP files in the users' 
~/Library/texmf trees: they won't be added. There could be a problem 
with some TeX files that are not teTeX 3 compliant (I have no idea what 
this might be) ...

As far as I understand teTeX, you can simply rename the recent 
/usr/local/teTeX to /usr/local/teTeX.zuvor and i-Installer would 
install a new /usr/local/teTeX tree and you could have two 
installations. I'd use this as a starting point.
