Your Microsoft account team can give you a comprehensive answer to this question and you should talk to them.
My unofficial answer, simply put, is that there is (curently) no automatic technical migration and no license migration requirement/plan from a dedicated environment to a multi-tenant one, and there is no contractual basis for requiring you to do that in the normal licensing contracts.
You could/should consider the multi-tenant platform when your dedicated environment is up for service renewal, looking at if the cost/features benefits of the multi-tenant environment to see if they outweigh those of the dedicated. Your account team can help you figure this out. When figuring that out you need to consider the costs of migrating your data from the one platform to another. But many customers have already indicated they intend to look at O365 at the time that their Dedicated service comes up for renewal due to the cost benefits if nothing else. Keep in mind the feature sets and technical requirements are different between the two platforms and should be looked at closely.
I expect Microsoft will develop some programs for customers who want to migrate from the dedicated to multi-tenant, but I am not involved in that and haven't seen anything like that yet.
Please talk to your account team for more information.

Hi AWEPS, BPOS Transitions into Office 365 are ONLY for BPOS-S customers! BPOS-D as outlined below are not being Transitioned/Moved but are having their services upgraded from 2007 to 2010 in order to have the latest and great software, for Messaging (Exchange 2010), Collaboration (SharePoint), Instant Messaging (Lync 2010), etc.
