If you are writing code that may possibly be used as a library or
framework by another project, then compatibility absolutely matters.

If you are incompatible you either force people to use your test
framework whether it suits them or not, or you force them to rewrite all
the test helpers you've already written.  Or they have to maintain
custom hacks to get some semblance of compatibility... you get the idea.
