This was tested on 10.10 but should work for at least 10.9 as well. Take a full Time Machine backup of the new system.

(do not Erase anything). Next run ...

Okay so I went ahead with the update anyway and it turns out that Migration Assistant is clever enough to recognise relocated user accounts. In my particular case it recognised them, but provided no option to restore their contents (just the account itself), possibly because my users volume hadn't been recreated at this point. However, after restoration ...
