3rd Party Document Management Migration to SharePoint 2010



I am scoping out a document migration project to SharePoint 2010. I would like to ask a couple of questions about using the SharePoint SDK's to perform the migration to SharePoint from a 3rd party document management library. I would appreciate any comments or feedback. 

After reviewing the SDK's there are 2 I focused on. The Content Migration API and DocumentManagement API. Am I correct in assuming that the DocumentManagement API is used primarily for accessing documents and not necessarily perform a migration?

Second, the Content Migration documentation implies that it can be used to migrate 3rd party document libraries to sharepoint. From what I've seen, the method to do this would be to produce the XML files required by the Admin tool and store them in a .CMP file, which is just a CAB file. Yet, I don't see any methods outside the Run method for the SPImport and SPExport classes that can be used to produce the .CMP file.

Are there API's that i am missing or is this correct? If there are no other API's available to produce the .CMP using the SharePoint SDK, would it be feasible to use the CAB SDK to produce the .CMP file instead? If so, is there compression issues I need to be aware of and so forth?

I appreciate any insight regarding these questions.

Cannot add SQL Server 2008 R2 Report items to SharePoint Server 2010 document library

Using account which is the primary parent site administrator, can upload RDS and RDL files to the document library (however, cannot open report). User is also a domain admin with SA on the database instances. Cannot add Report Data Source with "New Document" icon. The permissions granted to user '[domain]\[user]' are insufficient for performing this operation. Under "Site Settings", "Managed Shared Schedules" fails with same error. Attempting to deploy from BIDS results in the same permissions error. Sharepoint Server 2010, Report Server 2008 R2. RS and SP databases hosted on remote server (SQL Server 2008 R2). All connections (SharePoint services, RS services, users) except SQLAgent authenticating to remote SQL Server with Kerberos (all SPNs look correct). Single site, site collection "/". Document directory called "Reports". Windows Integrated Security (Negotiate). How would I troubleshoot/solve problem?
