I suspect it is the inclusion of the word "core" that causes the 
confusion, not the lack of a version number.  If you google "dom core" 
you get lots of hits for various old Level 2 and Level 3 specs.  Given 
how much this spec removes from level 2 and level 3, it seem strange to 
give it a version number in the same series...

How about "WebDOM" instead?
