No, the atsfp value only makes it difficult (not impossible) to
back down from an upgrade to 3.0.4, and you want to take care in
upgrading large installations.

There's no inter-version incompatibility if you wanted to run
one of each version (but obviously the 3.0.3 system will not
benefit from the bug fix).

'atsfp' doesn't manifest on the protocol wire, it's just a
different copy of an existing value for acknowledgement-state
