Yep. So much of the difficulty folks have had using SoS come from just 
over-thinking them.

A stack is a stack is a stack.

With script-only stacks there is one distinction: the storage format 
contains only the stack script, and optionally a behavior reference.

That's it.

Everything else you can do with a stack at runtime can be done with any 
stack, regardless of its storage format.

Indeed, nearly everything we see in the IDE these days are SoS.
