Compatibility characters are defined as being characters
that have compatibility compatibility decomposition,
according to definition D21 in chapter 3.

Having thus defined the term, it does not follow that one
should always (or even often) replace any particular character
by its compatibility equivalent. That area requires a lot of
judgement, and unless you really know what you are doing,
you are probably better off maintaining most compatibility

The one glaring excpetion to this are the Arabic forms, which
good practice dictates should always be replaced by their
equivalent strings.
