upgrading XP Home SP2 with XP Pro SP1 + slipstream SP2?

I have an old laptop that came with XP Home gold preinstalled. At the
time, I purchased an XP Pro retail upgrade, which included SP1, and
upgraded the laptop.

I'm replacing that old laptop with a new one (and totally decomissioning
the old machine), which also has XP Home preinstalled, but this time with
SP2 and some post-SP2 hotfixes in place. I want to upgrade the new laptop
to XP Pro. I want to slipstream SP2 and the post-SP2 hotfixes into the XP
Pro upgrade+SP1 files and create a new CD.

If I successfully slipstream SP2, et cetera, will I be able to correctly
upgrade the new laptop in-place? I've installed from scratch with
slipstreamed media before, but never upgraded. I would expect that as long
as the upgrade disk has a superset of the service pack(s) and hotfixes
prsently installed, the upgrade should work correctly, no?

Yes is should be fine as long as you have all the drivers needed for the
laptop.
