I'm sure NASA will have worked out a shuttle-to-shuttle transfer technique utilizing the same mating adapters used to dock with the ISS. There will need to be some "bridge" component, as the airlock/docking adapters used to dock with the ISS don't clear the payload bay. Take a look at this photo: /sts-115/html/s115e05689.html The shuttle's docking adpater extends only to just under the crew cabin. The rest of that structure is the ISS.

The herd instinct among economists makes sheep look like independent thinkers.
