I don't see a compelling reason why we would need to change that right now since maintaining Tcl 8.4 compatibility in portfiles and MacPorts base code isn't that hard.

In fact, we had to make some effort in the past to make sure that this is the case (to avoid problems where you might uninstall/upgrade the MacPorts tcl and have MacPorts stop working partway through and be unable to easily repair the issue).
