Re: XForms document versioning (PR#104)

Mark,

we changed section 3.3.1 to default model version to empty, and defined empty to
mean that the processor gets to choose the version. If no version chosen is
available, the xforms-version-exception is dispatched to the default model. The
declaration on the default model is used to make the choice. Later models may
offer declarations of model version but xforms-version-exception is a gain
dispatched to the default model if their declarations are incompatible with the
version chosen.

Regards,
Ulrich Nicolas Lissé.
