I'd like to offer a contrary opinion.  COMPAT_15 is harmless and
people will wonder why we have COMPAT_1[12346] but not COMPAT_15 and
probably add it for consistency.

This also brings up a secondary issue.  Should COMPAT_16 really be
COMPAT_15?  Don't you need to COMPAT_16 run signaling NetBSD 1.5
programs?  If so, it's really COMPAT_15. :)
