Greetings, I took an action to document the use of shortnames.

ACTION: Roland to sort out versioning and shortnames 
  [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2007/12/19-xhtml-minutes.html#action01] 

This subject was discussed at the HCG call 2007-12-07 and my 
interpretation of what is considered normal practice is as follows:

The shortnames for a spec are organised as follows:

  shortname     - If a recommendation exists, then it is the latest 
recommendation.
                  If no recommendation exists yet, then it is the latest 
draft of Version 1.0
 
  shortnameX    - If a recommendation exists, then it is the latest 
recommendation of Version X.
                  If no recommendation exists yet, then it is the latest 
draft of Version X.
 
  shortnameXY   - If a recommendation exists, then it is the latest 
recommendation of Version X.Y
                  If no recommendation exists yet, then it is the latest 
draft of Version X.Y 

While this doesn't answer the question of what to do with the 
"Second/Third/... editions of a Recomendation that are themselves not yet 
Recommendations, it does tell us how we should be dealing with XML Events 
2.
