The DNA revolution??? What and hows??

What and how could it be if today the instructions for life, is written with five letters. As there is an ongoing research for 5th base in DNA, what and how do you augment this? Keep in view the evolution, adaption and the enzymes involved within DNA.

As a biologist, I foresee the following things and questions.

If the said fake base is incorporated in humans, what could be the profile of the genes that are mutated?

How would they evolve? How could genetic information could be considered as stable or instable in terms of short repetetive sequences like microsatellites...
so a new pentanucleotide sequence might arise... GATC?.. etc

What could be the impact of Genetically modified organisms if at all they are incorporated in organisms??
