SCORM vs Tincan API

Our organization's practice has been to publish our courses in SCORM to load into our LMS. We are in the process of upgrading our LMS, and have been told by the vendor that there is an issue when replacing courses if they are published in SCORM 2004 v4.

This got me thinking - why continue to publish in SCORM at all? Why not publish everything in Tincan? I did some very brief googling, and didn't really find anything saying I shouldn't. But I wanted to check with the community.

I know that using Tincan I can, in theory, track a lot more data about learners and their interactions with our courses. Is there any reason to stay with SCORM? Will I be missing anything by publishing in Tincan?
