Yes it is. Salvager starts automatically on fileserver restart.

No openafs-things... but remember to backup your data.

I had to shrink afs-partitions once (in order to get space for my
backup-system, which is in fact a vos-dump to files). I made the same
steps as in your plan and it worked fine for me. But I have had backups
of each volume on an other server, so an accident would not have led to
data loss.
