I cannot speak for the "developers" but backwards compatibility is taken
into account at all times, from what I have seen.  This does not mean
that things do not break as otherwise it would be impossible to evolve
org but changes that break compatibility are not done gratuitously.

The same applies to Emacs more generally.

Note that you can always continue running an old(er) version of org (and
Emacs) should you need to.  (Unlike the proprietary world, older
versions are always available.)  This is not ideal, of course, but the
possibility is there.
