There's a typo here;  The "a again" should simply be removed.
I mistyped this in the text sent to Ulrich.

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.
