It is unlikely that any PA aircraft model and its hardcoded lights will be changed in the future, as far as I know.
Furthermore there are new A32x aircraft models with sharklets available, wich all include hardcoded lights again, see post 25 Mar 2020.

The corresponding airway to the transition waypoint DENVO is "SE" southeast from OBBI.
