A few comments:

1.      You are correct.  The only way to move libraries from one ASP to 
another is to save the libraries, delete them and then restore them 
specifying RSTASP(1).

2.      If you think that your system is protected, with unprotected DASD 
in a User ASP, I am sorry to inform you that you are not.  If a DASD unit 
in the User ASP which is not protected fails, your entire system will act 
like it suffered a failure.  Although you will not lose data from the 
protected System ASP, the system will crash, and you will have to recover 
the failing ASP (*UGLY).  You are better to dump the slow DASD and get current.
