Calibrated light frames

If I save my calibrated light frames for future use like adding more data; does this mean that I can ditch all my calibration files (MD, MF etc.) and all the current light frames?

If I get more data, I'll load the current lights as normal, but without cal files. They can then be loaded as one session even if the were initially calibrated in different three sessions. 

I just need to assure myself that I don't delete something that I might need at a later stage.

If you have calibrated lights and you're sure those were calibrated correctly then you could do that. However, personally I tend to keep the last batch of calibration frames. I ditch those when I make new ones. I do this because a few years ago the algorithms changed a bit and it was nice to redo the masters and ever since then I like to have that flexibility.
