Defining versioning syntax now seems premature if the current de facto  
processing model is to ignore the versioning syntax (correct?) and the  
de facto authoring practice is not to emit the versioning syntax. If  
all goes well, versioning syntax is never needed.

If things go wrong and in the future there is a need to signal  
versioning, that bridge can be crossed then and versioning syntax added.
