Hm, found it, it was misleading! I had no "upgrade" button in xbian-config, that's where I expected it to find. However I did find an "update to Debian Stretch" in Kodi under Settings\XBian\Updates, no need to reinstall xbian-package-repo! Now after launching that menu item and waiting for a couple of minutes
Code:
cat /etc/debian_version
gives me
Terminal
9.1
I could thus upgrade to stretch via Kodi and that's solved now.

However during upgrade I saw a couple of warnings rush by. Dunno if these are to be expected.

Some are warnings regarding changed shell scripts (which I didn't change) like so:
Terminal
Configuration file '/etc/init.d/hwclock.sh'
==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
==> Keeping old config file as default.

Missing jobs, like so:
Terminal
initctl: Unknown job: K01nfs-common
insserv: warning: script 'K01nfs-common' missing LSB tags and overrides
There are lots of warnings regarding unknown jobs, most often and very repeatedly urandom is named.

Warnings regarding missing runlevels, like so:
Terminal
insserv: Default-Start undefined, assuming empty start runlevel(s) for script `bootmisc.sh'
insserv: Default-Stop undefined, assuming empty stop runlevel(s) for script `bootmisc.sh'
Those warnings also included services that made me frown a bit, like cron and ssh.

Funny as well:
Terminal
Configuration file '/etc/init.d/rpcbind'
==> Deleted (by you or by a script) since installation.
==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
==> Keeping old config file as default.
Ehm, really? Keeping the deleted file - how did it do such magic?? Tongue

Then we have:
Terminal
Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated, passed through in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/^(.*?)(\\)?\${ <-- HERE ([^{}]+)}(.*)$/ at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/Question.pm line 72.
Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated, passed through in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/\${ <-- HERE ([^}]+)}/ at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/Config.pm line 30.
OK, think that's non critical, just deprecated syntax.

And then finally this. Don't exactly understand what this want's to tell me, however I also don't think this is critical:
Terminal
update-alternatives: warning: alternative /usr/bin/compare-im6 (part of link group compare) doesn't exist; removing from list of alternatives
update-alternatives: warning: /etc/alternatives/compare is dangling; it will be updated with best choice

Aside from this install warnings a short test showed the system seems to run as it did before the upgrade. So if you confirm that above warnings are to be expected and the changes in some config files are made by xbian and are to be expected as well, then I'm probably done with switching to stretch.

I can't remember which warnings were appearing while testing this (it is > 6 months ago)

But the annoying insserv warnings are ok (because XBian using upstart) the keep oldconfig warnings are normal and the rest can be ignored Smile

So everything looks ok

Sorry for not doing it! Dunno what anybody's doing, but I can tell you why I did not: Simply too many boards I'm in with too many things to read and understand. XBian & TVH for my VCR. Armbian for my Cubie-based Backup. Fhem for my home automation system. XDA-developer for my Android phones and CM. A forum for my car and my motorcycle. Github and MSDN for software. A forum for my homepage CMS. Heise newsletter and discussion board. If I dig a little deeper I might find some more... So you're trying to pull the information from it that's relevant for your own stuff and skip the rest. And occasionally you fail and miss something, that's why.
