I believe the presumption was that unspecified mechanisms (content 
sniffing, run time options being two examples) would be used to select the 
set of rules actually employed at run time.  To paraphrase using Schema 
language since SML lacks precise equivalent terms, a given SML assessment 
episode would use either 4e rules or 5e rules.  This is analogous to the 
Schema 1.1 language around using 1.0 vs 1.1 for XML and XML Namespaces, as 
I understand it.
