Default REAPER v6 with a v5 theme

Hello, what do I lose (if anything) if I keep using a v5 theme with the 6th version of REAPER?
Let's say, this theme:

There's no extra work. It'll look the same as it did in 5.

I noticed that meters in supercollapsed tracks don't work in REAPER 6. Those are included with some themes like Default Commala 5 and Pet's Default 5, which is what I use.

Those meters are not essential, but I personally like them and hope there is a way to fix it.

Noticed that too. In Hydra doesn't work.

Fusion is also broken by V6, which sucks big time as it's a killer theme.

Have you tried the setting:
Options - Preferences - General - Advanced UI/system tweaks... - HiDPI mode (Windows 7+): Unaware (v5.32-v5.98 behavior)?
Does it help?

Am I guessing it right that different levels for parent-tracks (folder-tracks) and their "kids" retaining the elements alignment for themes without the Theme Adjuster can be done via editing rtconfig?

Nothing is supposed to have changed in the way themes are drawn in V6, but with all the HiDPI and OSX metal drawing changes there has been a lot of work done in this area. If a theme isn't drawing the way it used to, that is a Reaper bug, and I encourage you to document it and report it as such.

Thanks WT.

Where's the best place to do that? Not clear from the homepage.

I lost png files that I customized in Default_5.0 after v.6.01 installation. I think it happened because the knew installation replaced zip file to the original one. Also some mouse modifiers and a shortcut have changed. But nothing hard to recover.
