Lightroom: Make export catalog could be backward compatible

On the export as a catalog function I'd like to make the catalog backward compatible as I don't know if the person I'm sharing the catalog with is as up to date with their subscriptions as I am. I'd love to give them an older catalog just in case to avoid that issue.

Note that you can share catalogs between minor versions of LR. For example, a catalog exported by CC 2015.7 can be imported into CC 2015.4.

But you can't share catalogs between major versions, for example, a catalog exported by CC 2015.7 can't be imported into LR 5.7.1.
