BES 5.0.4 high availability nodes on two different OS versions

We currently have a 5.0.4 HA setup on Server 2008 (no R2).  One of our two nodes just died and I was wondering if it is a problem to build up a new node on Server 2012 (again, no R2 since it doesn't appear to be supported). 


Does any know if this will cause any problems or should I just build out a new HA setup and use the transporter tool to move everyone over in the background?
