Using SharePoint 2010 Web Analytics Feature with MOSS UI sites in SP2010

We have created a site collection in SharePoint 2010. There were some features which were not upgraded to 2010 in our site so we were using MOSS V3 master page. We need to use the new Web Analytics Feature of SP2010 but these options are not visible when the site uses the 2007 UI.
As a workaround we can enable the SP2010 experience from the Site Actions menu -- Look and Feel -- "Title, description, and icon" option as below:

We need to make sure that we select the option "Preview the updated user interface option". Make sure not to select the "Update the User Interface" option. With the preview mode the Web Analytics option started to appear in the Site Settings page. Now once we are done we can always go to the old user interface. Only trouble with this is that while we are in preview mode the site is displayed with the updated UI so some of the customization done will be broken for the time being when the site is in preview mode.
