Thoughts on going from crop to full frame...

First, I am quite aware of the technical difference between crop and full frame. And when photographing, I like to isolate my subjects with a pleasant smooth bokeh.

I currently own a Canon 7D and a small collection of lenses which I am very happy with. But in the back of my head I have been playing with the thought of going to a full frame body, perhaps next year.
My question is to those who made the step from crop to full frame:

What did you feel about your “old” lenses when you went from crop to full frame, did they suddenly all feel too wide, and made you miss the apparent extra reach?

I know I could just crop the full frame photos, but I plan to fill the frame. And in that case, is it easier to achieve good bokeh on a full frame body?

And is it easier to get tack sharp photos from a full frame, due to the lower pixel density on full frame sensor?

I have these lenses:
EF-s 10-22
EF-s 17-55
EF 35 1.4L
EF 100 2.8L
EF 135 2L
EF 70-200 f4L
EF 400 f5.6
