To answer the backup quest, the most important thing you have is the audio fingerprint. There is no need to include wholefile md5s ever, and especially after you've altered the file (but not the audio) in some way. Just include the .st5 file with the seed, and you're good to go.

By the way, my vote goes for FLAC as well which, as Five already said, strips this extra data during conversion automatically. But if you want to keep the files in SHN format, there's nothing stopping you there either. As long as the audio fingerprints are ok, it doesn't really matter too much.
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
