Should I wait until failover servers upgrade to upgrade clients and template?

We are currently in the middle of an ND6.5.1 upgrade. The mail servers are now at 6.5, but the clustered failover servers are currently at R5.XX. Should we even consider upgrading the clients and template to 6.5.1, or do we need to wait until we upgrade the failover servers?
I guess you could consider it, and probably find a way to make it work, but I would do all the servers first. This just keeps things nice and clean, and is what Lotus recommends.
