Default Base map vs. real time stage 2

I have the AP for my 04 STI. As many of you may know, you have base maps and realtime maps. The supposed advantage of RT maps is that you don't have to reflash the ECU, which has a limited lifespan in its reflash count.

But, what really is annoying me, is that most threads and cobb tuning themselves recommend running the base map as your primary map, because it has more control over ECU parameters.

If you're reflashing the ECU on the base map everytime, then, it kinda defeats the whole purpose of limiting re-flashes, doesn't it?

The reason I bring this up, I'm going to stage 2 this weekend, and I'm pretty sure I'll reflash to 93 stage 2. Is this what others would recommend?

Yes, that helps. Confirms my other findings.

Still seems though, running stage 2 93 base and HWG or LWG RT would yield different results than HWG/LWG basemap and stage 2 93 as RT.

Would be nice to know what all these mysterious "parameters" are better controlled as base than RT.
