What would this return? Another list? If a browser supports CSS 1.0,  
2.1 and Mobile profile, when you query for "Version", which one will  
you get? When you want to know if tables are supported in XHTML Basic  
1.1 how will you specify the version?

I'm not convinced. I think I will need more examples.
