I would recommend to follow the BreezyUpgradeNotes.
But... I ran Hoary on my machine without ubuntu-desktop installed. I
uninstalled it since I wanted to get rid of the gstreamer-bloat, lots
of useless (for me) python packages, Evolution mailer which I don't
On such a system the Breezy upgrade ran without any problems
(i.e. without ubuntu-desktop).
I would not recommend to "clean up" your Hoary installation if you
don't know *exactly* what you are doing though.
