"or later" licensing can only add permissions to downstream users or developers: anything GPLv2 permits but GPLv3 forbids is permitted by a GPLv2-or-later license and vice versa.
IANAL, but it is not at clear to me that this is the case when you create derivative works by mixing GPLv2+ and GPLv3 code. What you say is certainly true if you separate again the GPLv2+ parts and distribute them only, but I'm not sure about what happens when you distribute the two parts together.
