I am trying to find out if it is okay for me to upgrade to 10.8 on my client computers and have them connect and authenticate with the 10.7 server that I have.  Due to some compatability issues with my network I am unable to upgrade my serverto 10.8 at this time..

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

    I have 10.7.5 servers and 3 client 10.8 syncing, So far no issues (knock on wood)

    I had the same situation with 34 student client iMacs on 10.8.4 connecting via Remote home Directory , Open Directory to a 10.7 server on a mini. Everything seemed to run fine, although there were occasional timeouts on logins. (which I believe I tracked back to the Permissions settings when adding new users. AFP - needed to be added at the group level for easier setup)  We ran this way for a couple months, I updated several of the clients to 10.8.5 as well. Finally, with some of the supposed fixes in 10.8.5; I upgraded the server one night and everything still seems to run fine.  Even all Adobe CS6 APPs ran fine, except Illustrator, which never seems to like R Home Dirs.
