As have got 1TB external drive, there is no problem ...perhaps in a decade need to change for a bigger one.

I'd say wait until you get your first problem before you go straight in and download the entire blockchain on one of your wallets.
If you keep the four wallets going in different directories on the hard drive as it'll take only the 10 hours again to redownload everything if there is a problem and it doesn't take up any more than 10GB of space on your drive anyway for the ones that are pruned.

I keep a full updated version of blockchain, it was 5 weeks to get fully download, so I prefer not to download again from "0".

You need a very fast computer to download the whole blockchain in just 10 hours.

Your computer must be very old if it takes 5 weeks to download.

Either that or there's quite a large problem with it.
One of mine is 7 (years old) and that predicts about a week to download the blockchain.

Bitcoin Core will still keep all wallets synced and still scan for transactions for all wallets loaded even if you can't use them in the GUI.
Will it show alerts on incoming transactions to secondary wallets?
Are there plans for a GUI, or at least a way to switch the primary wallet without a restart?
