Why not just make it an export function. IE export to old blender format.
It might be nice to start writing the open function so it checks the
version info. This way it can say that a blend is from a newer than
self version and warn that it might crash  or suggest that the user go
back and save in an older format using the export functions. You can
do this in Open Office to save files for older versions of MS Office
so it would not be a new idea to users.
