Yes there are many WG who use version numbers in the shortname.
It allows for example to refer to the latest Audio Spec 1.0 or the 
latest Audio Spec 2.0 for example.
But I am fine without it if you want it the other way.

I am not sure what you request here. public-audio@w3.org is listed to 
send feedback. You want that for public-xg-audio@w3.org ?  but this XG 
isn't closed.
