When I suggested cementing version 1.0 (since 1.1 is pointless for a  
vocabulary with 1.0-compatible element and attribute names and  
harmful for interop), Hixie said that if the spec doesn't allow the  
use of 1.1, people will do so ad hoc anyway.

To me, that means exactly the same as "some version" considering that  
1.0 is the first version of XML.
