Roughly yes. That is the goal of the 2.0.x branch, languagewise.

_language_ compability. 

Some known missing functionality:
1 implements style delegation
2 vararray support is patchy.
3 customvariants are missing in the rtl
4 packages
5 dispinterfaces and dispid.
6 assembler routines have some constructs that are not supported.
   These are being eliminated at a fairly decent rate the last 
    few months

Libraries are done on a case by case basis (is this part already legacy
in D6/D7, is it too OS specific etc).
