an upgrade to v6r1 still requires program conversion even if you're
already running power 6 hardware.

"Programs have a new format on V6R1. Therefore, programs that were
created for earlier releases must be converted on V6R1 (or a later
release) before they can run. Similarly, programs created on V6R1
or later releases must be converted before they can run on V5R4
or an earlier release."

To complicate further, V6R1 non-POWER to V6R1 POWER may effect some implicit conversions to take advantage of POWER-specific features. Similarly for the reverse. There is no method of detection provided as from pre-V6R1 to V6R1+. Thus it is best to move to a POWER systems hardware for V6R1. AFaIK the implicit conversion will transpire irrespective of any system value or RSTxxx "force conversion" option settings.
