Does anyone have some guidelines on importing data from SugarCRM 6.5.x to 7.2.0?

I already have all custom tables and custom fields in 7.2.0 and have converted custom modules to 7.2.x per suggestions I got here:
Tips for reimplementation of SugarCRM v6.5.x customizations into v7.2?

Of course there are some tables whose data should not be overwritten:
fields_meta_data (already did that)
any others?

Note: I know that there are some schema differences but they should not prevent from copying data over... And I know this is not the SugarCRM recommended path for on-site customers.
But I also know this has been done successfully by others.

At this point I just want a system with our own data to "play" with in our development instance before the release of 7.5.x & the on-Site customer updates in September. I like to be ahead of the curve and right now I'm just climbing the steep learning curve...
