Wow, I am probably still a rookie, this being my second season and all, but probably the strong queen right hive will at first think this is attackers and fight. The queen should be protected by the current residents. They will break thru that newspaper in 24 hours or so anyway.
Now, I thought I wanted all mediums. Well I have changed my mind. I think they winter better with a deep, make much better comb in a 'designated' brood area. I found with mediums the combs were willy nilly more often than not. Brood requires certain sized cells, not honey or pollen.
I would keep one deep for the brood area and do the rest in mediums. You pretty much need to leave the honey in the deeps for the brood rearing anyhow, so it isn't really a loss of product, and willy nilly for honey makes no difference at all until you start busting the combs to get the frames out.
