I'm not sure I agree with that. In either ist:version proposals ("root document always" or "either root document or rules element")
an external file would have a version. Wouldn't it?

<!-- myRules.its -->
<its:rules xmlns:its="ITSURI..." its:version="1.0">
 ...rules...
</its>

<!-- myDoc.xml -->
<doc xmlns:xl="XLinkURI..." xmlns:its="ITSURI...">
 <its:rules its:version="1.0" xl:href="myRules.its"/>
 <!-- the version of the linked rules is the one in myRules.its not the one here -->
</doc>

It would be a bit dangerous to rely on the calling place (the rules with the link) to define the version. If the version of the
external file changes, then you have to updated all the links.

Maybe I'm missing something.
