Not exactly. "We" are not ensuring anything. I don't know the future.
A group might want to diverge completely on this idea and change what  
the actual HTML WG has decided. How many of us will still be on this  
list in 5 years from now. How many new persons will come.

We might even make it more difficult for people in the future without  
versioning.
It is not a black and white decision.
