FYI, we do have a BP on this already, or rather, one that covers 
assigning URIs to versions one by one and a separate URI for the 
series/latest version.

http://w3c.github.io/dwbp/bp.html#VersionIdentifiers (which basically 
says, do what we do at W3C for document versions/latest versions).

But I'm sure it can be improved with reference to the Linked Data Registry.

We already discussed this a bit in the DWBP group but so far have not reached a solution.
