Depends on your and your opponents' definitions of "fair", I guess :) There are things in the 2001 rules that are out of whack with the 2005 rules, although in general I think the 2005 rules will get you a little more bang-for-your-buck. But there's some strange things in the 2k1 rules that are rather unfair, even in their own ruleset, like Stone Skin, modified flame throwers, and Stealth.
If you don't care about scoring and are just out to have a fun game blowing each other up, then sure! But if you're some variety of Anorak overlords, then don't combine rulesets. Of course, if you're an Anorak overlord, you'd be using the 2k1 rules anyway.
