Yes, that's unfortunately true for any new feature we add to Emacs.
OTOH, everyone will have it once it's released.

To my mind, it should be feasible to release a forwards-compatibility
package with just the new behavior, if there's demand for it on Emacs 28
or older.

I wonder why `auto-save-visited-mode' is not just changed to fit your
needs here.

The main difference I can see is that it is not a local minor mode?  I
do think a local mode would be useful for adding to mode hooks, etc.  So
how about just adding a new local mode `auto-save-visited-local-mode'?
Would that cover your use-case(s)?

See also the new options `remote-file-name-inhibit-auto-save-visited'
and `auto-save-visited-predicate' that were inspired by the recent
discussion about `super-saver-mode' and `salve' on /r/emacs.
