Do you treat your hives? If so, I wouldn't even think about doing such a thing. Even if you don't, why would you want to move the honey? In cold weather, The bees will move honey to the cluster when necessary, so you want that honey in the deeps.

I think I would rather just move the frames for them on top of the brood. If it is a combination of brood with honey below I would let them sort it out.

guess I needed to give more info ,
I run 2 deeps with med honey supers . I have some hives that went through winter with 4 or 5 frames of solid honey left over, cant move them up don't want to extract at this time, was looking for a solution to get them to move the honey up.

That is the problem with different size equipment. The typical solution is to reverse the deeps but I don't know your timing.
