If you do not transfer the webspace but just the dns-records (as you
want to), there are no big technical issues.
If you would transfer the webspace to another server(means changing the
dns-record to point to another ip-adress) there could be a time where
isp-dns-servers have cached the old ipadress but the old
webspace-provider has already cleared your account. So a user would get
a 404 until the isp-dns-servers cache expires. But with only
dns-transfers there are usually no downtimes.
The pitfalls here are more of a buerocratic nature. The old
dns-provider has to let go of the Domain.
Normally if another big dns-registrant (i.e. schlundtech) is involved it
takes about a week time.

Yes, these requirements seem to be sane.

As i wrote to you per mail, we ( d-labs.de ) would sponsor the domain,
if you are interested.

no big deal...

between 10 to 20 euro i think...

as i said, sponsoring the domain is no big deal,
webhosting depends on traffic and so on
