Deploying an executable linked with 4.2.1 on a system that has
4.2.0 but not 4.2.1 installed.

I agree that people will hardly ever want to replace newer
version with an older one (except when the newer one is worse
that the older). It's that uncommon to deploy programs built
on newer systems on older ones (although not all OS vendors
support this).
