Yeah, you're right.  I wasn't thinking about that part properly - I  
was thinking about it in terms of a user *using* CONDSTORE vs. a  
server *supporting* CONDSTORE.  I guess that info does always need to  
be sent because it is possible to be using CONDSTORE info without  
sending an enabling command.

Sorry for the noise.
