I don't think we'll be very good at making these kinds of distinctions 
until some conceptualisation along the lines of 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FRBR gets more traction in our vocabulary 
and our specs. Until then, it's hard to even articulate a clear 
description of common situations like the different or not-different 
versions of the jquery libraries being made available from thousands of 
different websites and URLs...

cheers,
