It merely means that you should use a 3.0 image for publishing stuff that
can be read by 3.0 people. The project format changes are backward
compatible (e.g., a 3.1 image reads 3.0 projects fine) but not the other way

That's unlikely. Quite a bit has changed and integrating the changes back
into 3.0 is equivalent to updating to 3.1 alpha. And that's what people
should do if they're interested in the newer stuff.

Not unless you write one ;-)
