splitting jira instances, and maintaining issue links

Okay, here's a fun one:

I am going to be splitting my jira instance into 2 instances -- with different projects in each instance. I want to somehow maintain existing issue links between projects that are now in different instances.

I know you can create cross-instance issue links, but is there a way to convert pre-existing links into cross-instance links? Other than running some Jira CLI or DB query, and updating the link information into some indexable field, I can't find an obvious way to do this.

Any suggestions?

Is there any plan to support splitting instances for JIRA OnDemand ?

I am running a project for a customer using now 7 users, He plans moving on with his dedicated instance. Can I just export the project and import in a new instance ?
