It doesn't make sense to support API levels that nobody uses any more. The page Maneesh linked to has crucial data on what *is* being used (assuming that you intend to distribute the app publicly) ; you should read it carefully if you haven't done so yet.

Theoretically, yes. In practical terms, the difference will be negligible, because almost nobody uses levels 11 and 12, as that page shows - which you *have* read carefully by now, right?
