Risks of not upgrading the VM Hardware Compatibility versions to match the host?

We have upgraded some hosts from 6.0 to 6.7, what are the risks of not upgrading the VM Hardware Compatibility versions to match the host?

In my experience, Some virtual machine operations might be greyed out and unavailable. You might experience unexpected behavior in a guest operating system.

However, VMware does not recommend upgrading virtual hardware version if you do not need the new features exposed by the new version - https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1010675
