Well, mixing versions and using versions of packages that differ
several years in release dat will always be possible, but "on your own
risk" so to speak.

We do seem to have reached the conclusion now that 2.4 support should
continue and be handled by 2.4 buildbots, which is good. But as a
principle we can't expect zope.anything from 2009 to work with
zope.everything from 2006, even if both run under Python 2.4 (Which is
why we have KGS's). Keeping that sort of compatibility is going to be
more work than keeping 2.4 compatibility, and is practically
untestable in the general case (but well testable in the specific
case, of course).
