Nikkor 55-200mm VR vs. 70-300mm VR

I have the 70-300mm VR and I'm wondering about buying the smaller lens just for one long trip and then probably reselling it. (A pound is a big deal.) I don't expect to need anything beyond 200mm for this very long outing.

The test results show both lenses to be very similar, with the possible exception of the VR being a bit less effective on the shorter lens. Am I missing anything?
