Addison has answered the question for me :) -  Thanks

As to rationale, it was motivated by a comment from Martin Duerst on

What adding a specific version number does is establish a baseline---you mean "at least" 5.1.0. XML 1.0 5e did this too (as have other Specs). It's a good thing to do (since Unicode has steadily added things over time, this prevents someone from seizing on, say, version 3.0 and assuming you meant that).
