Any particular reason you want to go through the trouble of changing to silicone fluid? If you cook your brakes on a regular basis, DOT 5.1 fluid has a higher boiling point than DOT 4 but no special procedures required. If you for some reason manage to introduce droplets of water into your silicone filled system, getting them out again may be a challenge as the fluid and water won't mix, while with regular brake fluid you just need to flush out the old.

Silicone fluid is supposedly more compressible too, so is said to give a softer pedal.
