We decided a while back that we would not bother doing this. Version
are just "different".  This avoids all the mess that Arve alluded to,
and also avoids the Unicode collation mess when of non-ASCII version
strings.

The recommendation for authors is that they use the numeric pattern
and conformance checkers will be asked to suggest that to authors.

Kind regards,
Marcos
