Well just because they say "unknown" doesn't mean they're definitely going to break. It means WordPress issued a release and it's either not tested yet or the page just hasn't been updated yet. Of the ones you list there, All in One SEO Pack, XML Sitemaps (although personally I use Yoast's plugin which does both of the previous), NextGEN Gallery and W3 Total Cache should work with pretty much any updates. Maybe YARPP too; that's pretty common. I don't use Redirection anymore because I found it to be buggy, and the rest of them I am not familiar with.
Unfortunately, updates are not really negotiable and a cost of doing business. As soon as WP plugs up some hole or other, miscreants find another one. And same goes for plugins, too.
