mmm, what? ODS is a database file format. Each FB version can create
DB only in it's own format, and can work with existing db's with the
older format.

old database have old ODS. nothing can change it. You may only backup
this db and restore with new FB, but this means that DB will be
created as new, with new format, and data will be moved from backup to
new DB (with the new ODS).

registering/unregistering have nothing to the database file format.
