Not that I am aware of right now (I could be missing something though).
What you perhaps could try is to save update commands to a file,
transfer to your central server and update there.  Obviously that would
require using timestamps, not "N", in the update commands.

An alternative would be to build a converter. That would require
some programming but I guess it wouldn't be too hard if using
rrdtool's current source as a starting point.

Maybe that would be a welcome addition to the 1.2 series:
command rrdtool import
