Info explaining pitfalls having to do with BACKWARD Compatibility

Could someone point me to a doc that does a good job on explaining backward compatibility in MEP...  2013 saving back to past releases?

 

We do not have a document, but have two TS’s.

 

From 2013 File Format change: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=18801721&linkID=9240617  (Applies to Core AutoCAD, but not entirely to AEC verticals.  Ie. Cannot save backwards across file format.)

 

From 2010 File Format change: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=13117479&linkID=9240657

Mike,

Did the above links help?  That's all the documentation we have other than the myriad forum posts on this topic.
