If LuaTeX breaks compatibility with earlier LuaTeX files, then it
seems acceptable in some sense not to support older versions of
LuaTeX. If LuaTeX is stable at some point, then I'd have no problem
with removing support for any earlier versions of LuaTeX. As Karl
said, there's no harm if you want to keep on updating to track
LuaTeX's changes.
