So on high speed sweepers, the car balance changes slightly towards oversteer (or less understeer) after the upshift since there is less weight on the rear wheels. But it is all very manageable.

I did however experience what you mention. At CMP, there is crest in the middle of a corner and I need to upshift right when I hit the crest. I do as you say and slightly open up the steering wheel just before I upshift.
Sorry - I meant change in power. plus or minus will affect the cars yaw at the edge.
