It could be seen as a downgrade, but I recently bought a Sora triple FD due to the same concern - 9 speed drivetrain and the narrower cage width that 10 speed FDs have. I wasn't sure this was a good idea because it's a cheaper part, but I've been very happy with shifting on the Sora. Don't know how durable it will be, but at that price, I wouldn't mind just buying another one if it ever fails (unless it falls apart in no time, but I don't think that will happen).
