It's worth mentioning.

I completely agree. Even if we have to come up with a
naming/versioning system that doesn't mesh completely with history
(eg. skipping a version number), it would be far preferable to having
multiple version numbers associated with a single SPARQL revision. The
confusion that it's generating already shows that we need to rethink
this.
