making changes (or not)-16/48 to 16/44

I got a really nice show recently and it appears to be 48k. I can inhale with Cubase (but then I'll never be President-lol). This can be exported as 44.1. What is the feeling about making the change before sharing? Normally, I would never touch those files I share. Am I doing a courtesy or is it better left alone?

current: Lineage
Astra DVB-S Radio Broadcast (MPEG-1 Audio Layer II, 48 kHz @ 320 kbps) >Kathrein UFS-922 (Firmware v2.03) >rts
>ftp >HDD >rts >TS Doctor v1.1.46 (demuxing) >mp2 (48 kHz @ 320 kbps) >FB2K v1.1.7 (conversion to wav) >wav (48 kHz)
>WaveRepair v4.9.3 (tracking @ Red Book sector boundaries) >wav (48 kHz) >TLH v2.7.0 Bulid 172 >flac (48 kHz, no DAE)
*********************
[proposed]: Conversion to 44.1
Steinberg's Cubase LE 1.0.8 (resampling to CDR redbook 16/44.1) > TLH 2.4.1 Build 160 (encode FLAC Level 8 + sector boundaries verified + generated md5/st5/ffp)

P.S. Would the lineage above be ok at TTD? Is it "allowed"?

Not allowed here. Digital broadcasts are lossy (as seen in the lineage).
In regards to your basic question, I would leave it as-is, only downsampling my personal copy.

Yeah, unless you want it to be ready to burn to CDR(s) I would leave it at the highest quality.

Many cd burning programs will automatically convert 48Hz files to 44.1Hz before burning

I knew that lineage looked lossy. Thanks for the quick course correction.
