aloha!

since the technical recommendation we are working on currently 
is assumed to be the last iteration of HTML, i propose that we
call it Canonical HTML, and leave numbering out of it altogether
(unless, someday, we issue Canonical HTML 1.1 to incorporate 
corrections, errata, etc.

DEFINITIONS (obtained from http://www.m-w.com/)

1. canonical 
  * Function: adjective
     1 : of, relating to, or forming a canon
     2 : conforming to a general rule or acceptable procedure : ORTHODOX
     3 : of or relating to a clergyman who is a canon
     4 : reduced to the canonical form <a canonical matrix> 

2. canon
  * Function: noun
  * Etymology: Middle English canoun, from Anglo-French *canoun, 
    chanoun, from Late Latin, canonicus, one living under a rule, from 
    Latin, according to rule, from Greek kanonikos, from kanOn
