You have 71 days to do the next upgrade. Before that, life is good.  You 
will get nasty messages once per hour.

You likely will encounter problems, but this depends from LPP to LPP.  I 
would recommend against it.  (BTW, LPPs like OfficeVision will definitely 
have problems. RPG would be safe.)  Attempting to use any LPP in an 
unsupported release will lead to problems.

It doesn't.  The upgrade instructions will prompt you to execute the Add 
Licence Key (ADDLICKEY) command.

As long as you haven't changed the system value QSECURITY, the answer is 
no.  Note that you cannot change QSECURITY to 10 as of V4R3.  (Thank God)
