Not at the present time, as long as you don't upgrade the IBX
components. The reason is that the latest version checks for the
version of GDS32.dll, there's a patch for FB's client library to work
with this. But, who knows what other client library check that
Borland will come up with in a future version.

Dialect 1 is mainly being kept for compatibility with IB 5.x
databases. And, some of the newer functions and syntaxes may no be
available in dialect 1. And, dialect 1 will be deprecated in a future
version of FB(I'm not sure if a definite decision has been made as to
which version it will be done in).
