From my standpoint we can promise to do our best. But giving
a fixed guarantee that we will never break rolling code
upgradeability within a 3.x version is a very strong
statement that can hurt us badly. It will eventually put a
huge workload on us for when we find a bug that requires
data fields to change. 

But if you are 100% certain that these bugs never happen,
I'm fine with your guarantee.
