Parasolid from 09 to 08

I have recently sent models to people using solidworks 2008, I use 2009. I saved as a parasolid and to my surprise the models came through as dumb solids (previously some were weldments, some were featured solids). The appearance for each part defaulted to grey.

Did I do something wrong? I could achieve much better results exporting these as IGES, at least then the colours remain and I expect them all to become dumb solids.

It seems strange to me that I have no backwards operability here at all. Is there a better way to handle this?
