I love the Better Than Bullion brand, and I keep several flavors in the fridge, as it keeps seemingly forever (most of a year), and a jar takes up way less space than a box of stock, which is simply a box of flavored water. But I agree with you that sometimes you just need to assess whether the stock flavor will be missed at all. If not, then skipping it (but adding liquid), or using your suggested enhancements is enough.
