heating vent in bathroom

I need to move a sink and cabinet in my bathroom over to the next stud. The heating vent for the bathroom is, of course right in the way. I have the framing exposed and see that the heating vent for the room behind the bathroom is next to the bathrooms vent. Would there be a problem with sealing off the bathroom vent and using the other rooms vent to feed both rooms?
It seems that by sealing the original bathroom vent off, I wouldn't lose too much air pressure. I guess otherwise I could open up the ceiling below and actually reroute the ducting to an altogether new area. Any advice would be much appreciated.

You might be able to get away with your proposed solution but it most assuredly is the wrong way to proceed. In a properly engineered and installed duct system each duct is designed for a specific air flow to a specific room.

You would be best to move the duct that is currently in the wrong place.
