When used, does it move inodes on disk, or just change the numbers?

Because there seems to be still danger on inode64, would it be worth to 
sometimes run xfs_reno to get most files back to inode32, but still 
mount with inode64? I know this would create big inodes again, but at 
least old data would be safe.
