provided that the rpms are newer (ie, higher e-v-r) then it should work.

I did a fair number of rhl 7.1->7.3 and rhl 7.2->7.3 upgrades with yum -
and barring some dumb pkging bugs they worked pretty ok.

Specifically look out for the kernel <2.4.7 and mkinitrd

in short - remove the older kernels.

I upgraded a primary file server from 7.2 to 7.3 in place, other than
the reboot it works just fine.
