Add a statement to docs regarding backwards compatibility #4738
For those working on Gutenberg's adoption in the broader WordPress ecosystem, it would be helpful to add a statement to the docs regarding backwards compatibility.
Once we have this statement in place, it'll be more straightforward to address the existing backwards compat issues.

I attempted to answer the backwards compatibility question to the best of my knowledge: https://danielbachhuber.com/2018/10/13/three-flavors-of-gutenberg-backwards-compatibility/
Per today's documentation bug scrub, the ticket raises three particular questions:
I feel like the first and third questions are best answered in #4186, but the 2nd question is unanswered.
Do any of the leads have particular opinions on that second question (how back-compat breaks are decided)? Is it a question even worth answering in documentation? If not, I'd propose we close this ticket and roll the rest into #4186.
