Could one just put this into the openstack handler?

set the cREVGeneral["stackFileVersion"] of this stack to "5.5"

Any "save"/"save as" should save to 5.5 format without any special handling
in any LC version?

But only if you have turned on the option to "preserve stack file version"
in the Files and Memory preferences pane. Otherwise it remains oblivious.
