Maybe in cases where we're confident about the ABI compatibility and
are setting compatVersion we could also ship assembly publisher policy
files. Or perhaps this is something the the Mono.Addins assembly load
hook can handle automagically based on the compatVersion.

IMO either of these would be preferable to holding back the assembly versions.
