System copy (refresh) from QAS to PROD : allowed ? supported ?



We are in the process of installing a NEW BI 7.01 landscape (NW 7.01, Oracle, HP Itanium).

The QAS environement has been isntalled a few while ago, developers have been working on it, created transaction and master data, etc ...

The PRD enviromment has just been installed from scratch, It isn't yet used at all.

I have been asked to perfrom a refresh (system copy) from QAS to PRD. Indeed, it will take too much time to transport between QAS->PRD, and many adjustements would be required afterwards especially regarning the master data.

I'm quite uncomfortable with this kind of unusal refresh QAS--> PRD, I almost certain that I have read some sap notes stating that this kind of operation is not supported by SAP, and that we may loose SAP support, but I cant' find these notes anymore ...

Since, PRD is not yet in productive mode, do you think that this kind of operation is allowed by SAP ? Is there any sap documentation dealing with this problematic ?

thank you very much for your answer.
