DB2 for z/OS v9 migration question

DB2 for z/OS v9 migration question
I recently ran the premigration job (DSNTIJP9) on all of my v8 NFM subsystems
and I have a questions concerning the plans identified as not having been
bound since/before v7. Before I go to my application DBAs, what I'd like to
know is if a plan was last bound prior to v7 and is strictly package bound (no
dbrms bound directly to it), should it still be a candidate for rebinding as part
of the migration plan or as long as the packages it contains are bound on a
recent release, is it ok? I noticed I've got several plans that fit this
description and before I make any requests, I'd like to know for sure what
really needs to be done.

Thanks

There are a few constructs for the plan header, and those change a little with
almost every version. This one does not make much of a difference, but then
it does not cost much to get the later format for the header, rather than do
the work whenever the plan is loaded.
