Default Oat stout w/ irish yeast on windsor yeast cake

Ok, so I bottled my oktoberfest tonight and I have a decent windsor yeast cake at the bottle of my secondary. My oatmeal stout has been in the primary for 2 weeks. It is a higher gravity beer 1.070 SG, so would it be okay and beneficial to siphon my stout on this yeast cake now or just let it sit in the primary for a month?

You already have it yeast in primary for 2 weeks. Just let it set on that yeast cake and clean up. I cant see any benefit to it going onto the windsor cake.
