I think you underestimate it, or I overestimate it :-)

I hardly know GDI, but from the little bit I used it, and from the huge amount 
of literature I have seem about it, I think it is as complex as for example 
Direct3D10 or maybe even more complex.

But I think if you can do a fluent transition, then the huge amount of work 
will be cutable into small, doable chunks of work, and if you stop after 
doing half of the work for some reason the existing things are still of use.
