I would agree with this strategy. It seems like the Yanks have more guys available to be a quality 3B tha a quality 2B. If Aaron Boone comes back in mid-late season, its easy to stick him back at 3B with Jeter having had experience at 2B rather than reshuffling at a later date. If a team is going to monkey around with its IF like that, its better to get it over with in April, May, June than August, September, October. Unless you are the '68 Tigers.
Also, Giambi's pretty immobile at 1B, so having Jeter at 2B would help alleviate some of the weak defense on that side of the field moreso than putting Wilson, Almonte, or Cairo at 2B.
Having said all of this, George hasn't made any moves for a few days, so he's probably working on a deal for 2B right now as we speak.
