FWIW, just to be clear:

My comments about versioning and version numbers only apply
to the URI scheme, and not to language specifications in 

I haven't reviewed any of the other WebApps documents,
except in the context of reviewing the URI scheme.

In general, I support appropriate use of version numbers in
languages and language specifications, especially since
documents and file formats have ample opportunities for
in-band version indicators. It's unfortunate that URIs,
being compact strings, have no place for version indicators.

Dear Larry,

thank you for your comments.

I have provisionally made this change. I agree with Marcos that it would be good to do so throughout the widget family of specifications, especially since there is no reason why versions of its various components need to evolve in synchronised fashion - one could use P+C 4.2 with WARP 2.7.

Recommendation to the WG: apply the same change throughout.
