Are they 100% compatible? Can you switch between both without loosing
any functionality? Will end user notice switch?

network-manager-applet now support both and I doubt that someone tests all indicators - systray, appindicator and ayatana-appindicator...

>From https://sunweavers.net/blog/node/67:
In Ayatana Indicators (speaking with my upstream hat on now), we are currently working on a re-implementation of the rendering part of the indicators (using GTK's popovers rather then menushells), so that it works on vanilla GTK-3. Help from GTK-3 developers is highly welcome, in case you feel like chiming in.

So sounds like visually they are not same or will not be? How that
affects Unity 7 or other desktops?
