adding 10gR2 to 11gR2 clusterware on single node

wanted to add our original 10.2.0.3 database to  srvctl apparently this is not possible nor supported in 11.2.0.3

after executing
"
           srvctl add database -d V10 -o /u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1   -n P10
         "
got following fine error ...

"
PRCD-1245 : Addition of database version 11.2.0.3.0 is not allowed using srvctl version 10.2.0.0.0
"
the error is a bit misleading since the db i was trying to add is certainly a 10.2.0.3 ...
anyway further reading showed that this is not supported ....
