I think it's both forwards and backwards compatibility.

Backwards in the sense that new code (ie requiring some container)
should not break the old themes, while forwards in the sense that old
themes should work with things like new XML attributes through the
choice of sane defaults.

Or am I labouring under my own special brand of ignorance as to the
correct definitions of backwards/fowards compatibility? If so, apologies.
