Even if you did save them, there'd be no way to use them. The iPad 4 isn't even OdysseusOTA compatible, you you'd be stuck on iOS 9. Chose carefully.

To be more exact, SHSH are irrelevant on not just the iPad 4, but anything above A4 processors (iPad 1, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4G.) If you upgrade to iOS 9 now, you'll be stuck with iOS 9.1 which has no jailbreak, and no possibility to downgrade whatsoever. This is because aside SHSH, Apple implemented APTickets which are a more complex way of preventing downgrades, and cannot be reproduced/achieved in any way (as of now.) The only downgradeable devices are the ones I mentioned, the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2 and even those are extremely limited as to which versions are available.

SHSH are not irrelevant for some Odysseus downgrades. Also, Odysseus supports not only the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, but also the iPad 3, iPad Mini and iPhone 5. In theory, any device that works with kloader (32-bit devices) is supported. You just need keys for a specific version to make bundles which you use to downgrade.

Well said. Additionally I have to note that I also have a iPad 4 and 9.0.2 runs very smooth and snappy. I don't think 9.1 would make a difference but it's still a one-way road and no jailbreak yet.
