Most vehicles will accomodate a Britax rear-facing tether. You may have to loop the included strap around a seatbelt anchor, or a non-moving, structural portion of the seat in front. You then attach the tether hook to the metal ring on the included strap. You can also run the tether back to the tether anchor used for front-facing carseats, though this may be less convenient. You can find some links on this topic and general information in the LATCH guide at the site Steve posted above, also:
In the tether section, you will find a mention about the Britax rear-facing tethers with a couple links to other sites that have photos as well.
The 2000 Odyssey does have two standard tether anchors on the bottom of the 2nd row chairs, and optional tether anchors on the rear tailgate sil. I have all the details here:
Of course, the Odyssey is not going to be compatible with all carseats. It could happen that your particular models don't work well for one reason or another, though that is possible in any vehicle. The new LATCH system does make installation easier in some cases, but you would have to purchase a 2001 Odyssey for that. The 2000 Windstars did have LATCH, and their safety ratings are also very good overall.
NHTSA said the buckles in these seats can easily collect particles of food, drink, dirt, sand or other material that may interfere with the buckle. The consumer may have difficulty latching and unlatching dirty buckles. In some cases the material may cause a “false latch” if the user mistakenly believes that the buckle is securely latched when it is not."
