What are the Compose-related implications regarding Kotlin’s JDK IR backend being now beta in 1.4.30?
Can this possibly mean we can reasonably expect future updates to Kotlin not to break older versions of compose anymore (starting from alpha12 on)?

Unfortunately no, the Kotlin version and Compose version are tightly coupled because the Compose Compiler needs to plug deeply into unstable API of the Kotlin Compiler. So the versions will likely be somewhat tightly coupled for the foreseeable future.
However, there is some other stability news coming down the pipeline in the near-ish future, so stay tuned.
