The 11s are dominant now and the 10s are cheaper. Buy a SR or R 10s and complete the bike (which is complete as it is if we are serious) or since the market moves in 11s it may be a bad investment?
The frame is pristine the groupset will be top ... So why no buy a 10s?

We were in Italy this summer and my son broke his Record 10 chain. His Record bike now has a Veloce chain because that's all we could get. Works fine (as do all the Veloce parts I've used) and who looks at chains?
Why go for 10 speed? The main reason for me is the quality of the shifting - I just couldn't get on with the feel of the 11 speed (Chorus in my case). In many other ways, it doesn't really make sense but there still seem to be many 10 speed parts available and KMC's lightweight chains are excellent.
If my 10 speed kit wears out (and can't be serviced and repaired - one of the beauties of Campagnolo is that they are very serviceable) and I can't get replacement parts then I'll probably migrate to an electronic groupset. My expectation though is that, based on that fact that my 8 speed kit is still running perfectly, my Campagnolo 10 speed will outline me.

True. I have three Campagnolo 9 speed bikes and one 10 speed. I doubt I would ever wear any of them out. Might break a part if I wreck. But I consider wrecks differently than wearing a part out. Cassettes, chains, rings should be available forever. Apart from crashes, I am sure those bikes will continue to work perfectly until I die. Hopefully more than a few decades from now.
Hard to find a good 9-speed RD for a normal price. Newer ones have a diff cablepull. Nothing is forever. . . .
Lets focus on the Original question.
When having buckets of money to spoil, you just buy what you want but . . .
The TS is writing about saving money and therefore he's interested in 10-speed.
Important question here is: WHY should you change the current mix when it works perfect?
Wasted money to buy a new group, imo.
Keep the money for a future bike.

You don't wear out the G springs in the (rear) shifters?
I replaced the piece that breaks in the first 9 speed Chorus shifters. It was aluminum, cast I think, not the newer carbon, plastic replacement piece. Long ago it was a very common problem to have this piece break. Bike still shifted with this broken piece, just not too well. This was back in 1999-2000 period.
