This ideal world that you are describing in which identical versions roll out across all platforms simultaneously simply doesn't exist.

You’re missing the point, again!
Version 3 for Mac IS compatible and can read the older format, and can even export in the old format. How do you expect the Windows version 1 to be forward compatible and suddenly be able to read a format that didn’t exist when it was released?
Seriously, can you really list thousands of companies that make forward compatible software, that is able to handle whatever changes may appear in the future? Not even Microsoft can handle that. My old Word version that read and write .doc files can’t handle .docx files.
