Reading the flight schedule in, we see this:
ISS11---UP (TMA6) 15/04/2005 -- DOWN (TMA6) ~7/10/2005
REITER: UP(121) 09/09/2005 DOWN (116?) 05/05/2006
ISS12---UP (TMA7) 27/09/2005 -- DOWN (TMA7) ~01/04/2006
S. WILLIAMS: UP(116) 23/04/2006 DOWN (119) NOV 2006
ISS13---UP (TMA8) 22/03/2006 -- DOWN (TMA8) ~23/09/2006
KONDRATIYEV: UP(119) 26/10/2006 --
ISS14---UP (TMA9) 13/09/2006 --

I know the schedule is provisional.
Reiter will stay with both ISS11 and ISS12 expeditions, but Williams and Kondratiyev will do the same?.
It seems that the last will stay more time with ISS-14 than with his ISS-13 mates.

Anyone knows if the third member of the ISS crews are training with astronaut/cosmonaut of the next ISS expedition?
Could this bring now incompatibility problems, mixing the crews?
Any of the shuttle flights could launch an ISS-crewman at any moment (like a last minute experiment)?
