The switch to 700c will bring your cranks closer to the ground, and this does make pedal strike more of a problem. On many such conversions, going to 165mm cranks is a worthwhile improvement. Also consider narrower and shallower pedals.
Regarding the brake comments, a lot of older bikes came with ridiculously long reach brakes. If you already have a few mm of downward adjustment on your current brakes, you should be in good shape.
