I don't know if I would say that, it sounds like it may be a very cost effective move if the pump is in good shape. Those old pumps are are really tough and worth rebuilding if they are worn and if already in good shape they are definitly worth spending the cost of a new tank. My old Quincy pump is almost 40 years old and although I do have a certain sentimental attachment to it the thing still sees duty providing the air for my shop. I have it mounted remotely from the tank and removing the pump/motor vibration from the tank is a real plus for tank life if you have the room to spare. Sounds like a good plan to me!
