There are no compatibility issues with software. The capacitor removal is
strictly for electrical compliance, nothing that is even remotely "visible"
And it's hardly a case of "never going back". It would take less than a
minute to replace the capacitor should you ever want to. In fact, you could
simply snip/de-solder one leg only if you really wanted to. But there's no
need to worry - you'll likely never go back.
BTW be aware that there are some SIMM modules that are physically too high
to fit in the Coco3 case with the lid on. I originally had this problem, but
luckily found a bunch of modules (from old Macintosh computers) that do fit
