RE: pros/cons of setting COMPATIBLE parameter 11.2.0 or 18.104.22.168.4

From my understanding, once you set compatible, there's no undo.
Hence, if you have multiple databases, I would think setting compatible to the lowest version.
If you are 110% sure the database will be isolated, then safe to set compatible to 22.214.171.124.4

Subject: pros/cons of setting COMPATIBLE parameter 11.2.0 or 126.96.36.199.4
Good day list,
Very recently we have upgraded our 10gR2 (10.2.0.4) databases to 11gr2 and applied latest PSU patch (188.8.131.52.4). However, for some concerns, the COMPATIBLE parameter value was kept to 10.2.0.4. Now we need to change the COMPATIBLE parameter value reflecting to 11gR2. Therefore, I need an advice over setting the parameter to 11.2.0 OR 184.108.40.206.4? What are the pros and cons do you foresee.
Thanks in advance.
