Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

When you do this, with pooled data, you are simply recoding v010 (year of birth). You are not following individuals. You still have different cases (independent cases, in fact), with different weights within and across surveys. I would just stay with the original weights. I suggest that you first conceptualize the analysis without worrying about the weights, and then consider whether to re-calculate the weights.

For svyset, you need to construct unique id codes for clusters and strata, as has been described in earlier forum postings.
