The feature is incompatible if it requires changes to the driver.
An easy to understand historic example is that ext3 originally did not
have the file types in the directory entry.  Adding them means old
file system drivers can not read a file system with this new feature,
so an incompat flag has to be added.

If the filed is always zero for now please don't fill it out.  If you
decide it is worth adding the uuid eventually please add a compat
feature flag that you have a valid uuid and only fill out the field
if the file system actualy has a valid uuid.
