Found some issues with 16.12.4 in relation to 9200 switches in larger 
stacks if that's likely to have any bearing on your decision. Notably 
that the 48PXG switches will only stack to four high. If you go with 
five then a random stack member will fail to join the stack. Issue 
raised with TAC on this. I have a boatload of 48Ps on 16.09 where this 
behaviour is not exhibited. Haven't yet tried downgrading the 
48PXGs/upgrading the 48Ps to see how this might manifest itself.
