Yes, sure. My point is just that
"strongly discouraged" (as per the FAQ) is different from "simply
will not work at all". I find that a bit confusing, especially
since in other areas of the FAQ, explicit workarounds are stated,
e.g. on how to build a Makefile rule to extract flags from an
mpiwrapper to pass them to the compiler manually (which is in
exactly the same way "strongly discouraged". Maybe adding
something like "is strongly discouraged and may not even work in
certain cases, especially with Fortran" can help.

AFAIK the GNU people change the Fotran Module syntax every time

So openmpi compiled with 4.4.6 (sys-default for RHEL 6.x)
definitely does not work with 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 versions of gfortran.
Intel 'ifort' compiler build modules which are compatible from
11.x through 13.x versions.
So, the recommended solution is to build an own version of Open
MPI with any compiler you use.
P.S. As Hristo said, changing the Fortran compiler vendor and
using the precompiled Fortran header would never work: the syntax
of these .mod files is not standatised at all.

configure Open MPI with the system supplied
