app: XCF version 6 should not block compatibility mode.

Metadata presence implies XCF version 6 or higher. Yet metadata are
stored in parasites which are perfecly supported in older GIMP versions
and are passed along through saving.
Therefore there is no need to keep XCF 6. We just add a warning telling
that metadata won't be visible in older GIMP when saving a file with
metadata and compatibility mode.
