As far as I know, the only issue you will find with ealier stubs is the 
version of the C runtime linked against the stub (ie, by using the 
correct one for the target version you had some assurance the correct 
CRT was already installed) and the fact that later versions have more 
features (but not compatibility changes as such) available to the 
installation scripts.
