Depends what's in the stack file.

The traditional factoring of code, UI, and data became a best practice 
for good reason.

But stack files can be very versatile storage containers, offering many 
of the benefits of LSON (LC encoded arrays) but with the addition of 
being able to contain LC objects as well.

LSON's generally my go-to unless I have a specific need for something 
else, but once in a while stack files have been a good solution for storage.

There are many storage formats to choose from, and stack files have a 
place among them.  For keeping with the tradition of separating code, 
UI, and data, it's not the format but how it's used.
