"You can certainly work around that running a VM environment so that older documents can be accessed and worked with older applications." - or I could just keep on using LibreOffice and not have to bother with VMs, and be able to read/edit/create office documents and share them with anyone regardless of what their platform is. Even MSOffice has a Mac version, and MS are working on Linux versions. It only took MS a few decades, but they've woken up to realise cross platform is essential for growth. Apple is still in its shell of denial.Every recent Mac has had this type of limitation of requiring a very recent Mac OS paired with it to run. Even my late 2015 iMac needed macOS Sierra, you could not run a earlier Mac OS except via VM.
I imagine you will be able to run Mojave or older in a VM environment on a Apple Silicon Mac but it will come with what ever is the latest Mac OS you can be sure of it.
