nobody for instance. It should be katipo imho, as they are the most 
concerned. I have no libraries with 1.2, so i can't provide working 
migration scripts.
however, the method would be :
* run updatedatabase
* import MARC parameters table
* modify MARC parameters tables to fit your needs.
* run $koharoot/marc/updatedb2marc.pl script. This script is UNTESTED. 
It should work in theory. but that's all. It fills MARC tables from 
non-MARC (1.2 tables)
