That's definitely the easiest and most flexible route.

"Home" still exists, but it's not the home stack we
now from HyperCard. Afaik, it's a face-less stack
somewhere in RunRev memory.
No special handlers (well maybe a few, but nothing we
can touch anyway), no interface to setup certain
variables, no one-click jump to the template fields...

In fact, if you call up the 'mainStacks' in a
stand-alone application, it doesn't show up.
So it looks like an engine backward-compatibility
residu, but only the MC/RR boys can solve that
mistery.

Best regards,
