This shouldn't be a problem. Last time I checked, both Yoshi and Zyn simply
ignored entries in the files that they didn't recognise. When Yoshi saves
a .xiz file it is completely Zyn compatible. Also, Zyn simply won't see .xiy
files at all.
Wait... what if xiz file is saved from zyn, and than you need to load
to yoshimi again? It could just check, what version is newer, and
update older - may be ask about user choice in this case. As fariant,
load yoshimi version anyway, but if xiz appeared newer, than ask,
wether to update it (only after loading).
Now that is something I didn't think of :(
However, date/time stamps might not be very reliable as an indicator. Possibly
better would be reading the info tags. Ones saved by Zyn won't have the Yoshi
version numbers. It does rather slow things down though.
It's a completely valid point, but I don't know how far we should go in

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
