Well, as long as the firmware took, we don't really need the stock rom to boot.

Not sure how you're making out yet but there is also these odin flashables of NE5 firmware that include custom recovery without the rom, just the basic firmware with the rom stripped out. I've used them several times.
The one that doesn't specify has twrp and the one with philz recovery has it in its name.
And while I think about it, a wipe of internal SD is necessary when going back and forth from NE5 to OA6 otherwise you might run into other problems.
I think its due to the different API levels and the operating systems are very different and write something to internal storage SD that doesn't play nice when going back and forth.
