Interactions with legacy gear that does not support MSTP or does not support it the same way.
That is the biggest headache during transition.
After transition the biggest headache is making vlan changes as you noted.

Are there anything special with MSTP that I should consider in deploying in a network?

Only thing I can think of is to pre-configure VLANs for future use since topology will re-converge every time you add a VLAN to the MSTP instance.

Any other special issues I should be looking out for?
