Indigo and Kinetic Compatibility

Hello, I'm (perhaps foolishly) integrating a Kinetic ROS install with a third-party package whose implementation is built on Indigo.

In initial tests with clients built on Kinetic I've been able to read every message published by nodes built on Indigo.

However I am unable to subscribe to and read messages published by nodes built on Kinetic by clients built on Indigo.

Can anyone verify for me, is this a fool's errand? Is ros_comm as built in Indigo sufficiently different that is not fully compatible with Kinetic. There is precious little documentation regarding the compatibility between ROS versions so it is hard to tell without testing.
