Considering those scripts you are right; but, my main concerns would be
regarding some XAPI change. The scripts that we create and inject into the
Dom0 should not be that intrusive.

I do not know about the differences between CentOS 6 and 7, but the only
way I see a script stopping working is that if a program that the script
uses does not come with the CentOS 7 that is bundled with XenServer or if
that program does not work with CentOS 7 anymore.
I do not recall every single task that those scripts execute, at the top of
my memory I can say that they play with the systems' firewall. They also
mount, copy, and move some files around. I believe they also remove some
configurations from the XAPI sometimes.

Looking at the release notes in [1], it seems that none of the scripts
should stop working. However, to be sure about every single function and
task that ACS execute on XenServer a batch of tests would be required.
