Or even less prescriptive: "that might motivate the creation of a new version"

Hi,

I'm going to stay in line with my previous statements that we should avoid try to introduce 'hard' rules for what's a version. This would be too prescriptive. So David's wording is an improvement. Actually I'd even suggest to change 'that motivate the creation of a new version' into 'that are likely to motivate the creation of a new version' so that the final word is left to data publishers themselves.

Best,

Antoine
