Move devices from parent storage group to child storage groups

We want to use the parent and child construct for storage groups, but we already have them all setup with one parent storage group that contains all the devices. Is there a way to seamlessly take those devices and put them into child storage groups? I know that we could delete the masking view and build what we need, but I’m trying to avoid having to remove all the devices from the hosts.

Could we create a new masking view and have all the existing devices presented from both masking views? If that works, we would then delete the original masking view.
