when visiting the Dublin Core Web site, I was wondering if the draft  
should clarify whether the intended semantics around 'version' refer  
to versioning systems only or if they could be used in a broader  
context such as multiple versions of a 'work'.

Dublin Core for example defines relationships around the concept of  
'versions', e.g. http://purl.org/dc/terms/isVersionOf

IOW, there might be a situation when I have multiple versions of a  
resource that are not related to 'putting the resource under version  
control' but rather are the result of the evolution of the content.  
Such versions might even reside on different servers, managed by  
different authorities.

Do you feel the draft's semantics of 'version' covers this use case?  
Or not?
