You have me wondering now also and will be interested in the responses to your post.
My opinion is; assuming the 401 and new IRA are both to be tax deferred the advantage to the 401 comes from the fact many employers make contributions for the employee in the 401. You would lose this I imagine.
It doesn't seem likely that an employer would let you move those funds back into the 401 after they had been outside for a time.
Hope others will respond to this!
