Two non-answers for S.Mo. It's not population dependent. In fact, the reverse is true. The colony will adjust the population to be proportional to cavity size and stores.

You could winter in a deep and shallow, provided that the deep was backfilled with nectar in the late fall. Since we do not normally check for a completely filled broodnest in November, it would be best for you to winter in a double deep.
