About the only environment that would REQUIRE absolute 100% compatibility with Microsoft Office would be legal documents where two sides are collaborating on a single legal document so that all edits are saved in an identical format to provide a history of how the document came to be.
MS Office also has incompatibility between version of Office. Try open a document built in 2013, in 2010 or 2007. Completely breaks the formatting. I'd image its the same moving between 2013 & 2016.
So everyone needs to be on the same version if they are collaberating on a document, making more sense to stick with an open standard.
