This is not a wishlist, pie-in-the-sky, recommendation. Saving to an older format is a perfectly reasonable feature request if Scrivener is going to continue to be such a high profile professional development solution.

I wouldn't recommend installing it, though, as doing so would "undo" more than two years of feature enhancements and bug fixes and would break interoperation with iOS Scrivener.
It would also "generate sales" for Linux users to run the most recent version of Win Scrivener under WINE, and that approach doesn't require significant development on our part.
The question is not whether what you're proposing is worth money to L&L. The question is whether it would generate enough *additional* sales to justify the cost of development. I'm skeptical.
