Contrib modules are not required to support back compat in any way
currently - but they can also each have any more restrictive policy that
we want. I consider Highlighter to be 1.4 right now (even though thats
not explicit anywhere).

Warning users that you don't plan on promising back compat with
experimental warnings seems like a good idea to me.
