When I meant a local instance, I was referring to a local database/file storage option (on the Shib server) rather than utilizing the LDAP option for authentication, did not mean to create a whole new local instance of Shib and asking the apps to trust/connect to it.

How will you convince an application to trust that local instance, if it means what I'm assuming it means? And if you don't have to because you don't have a backchannel flow and it's running with the same key as production, it's not anything but another production instance that had better not be playing fast and loose with what it's doing.

They aren't technical issues, it's really semantics.

That would not be a good decision. 3.3.x was end of life the day 3.4.0 was released. Minor updates are not just enhancements to deploy optionally.
