I'm not sure that this is at all critical.

As I understand it, a store is nothing more than a bunch of templates
and ICTags that have been put together in such a way as to create a
store that is of your liking.

Since it is nothing more than groups of ICTags and templates, they will
be supported in all future versions of IC (although this, that, or the
other tag may be dropped through obsolescence.)

I am building my store on modifications to 'Construct Something' in the
faith that the changes that I am making that are working just fine
under 4.6.4 will work just as well under 100.10.25

I see only 2 reasons for upgrading the server once my store is built
and working:

1. There is a new function or ICTag that will make an improvement to my
store when I implement it.

2. There is a security issue with my existing server.
