I understand that the steps required to change my primary domain to a subdomain are as follows:

  1. Delete mysubdomain.com from myprimarydomain.com
  2. Create new account mysubdomain.com
  3. Migrate our Google Apps Core users and data
  4. Contact Google Apps Enterprise Support for assistance to delete myprimarydomain.com
  5. Add myprimarydomain.com as a sub to new account on mysubdomain.com

Note that I have spoken with an engineer at Google Apps Enterprise Support and they were unable to get me an answer after a few days worth of research, they were not able to conduct a test, and they were not able to find the results of anyone else who had actually done this. The engineer had me ask this question in the various other product forums where they remain unanswered.
