In principle, the type could include the version as a parameter
value, e.g.  type="text/coolscript;version=1.8". Another possibility
is to wedge it into the name, e.g. type="text/coolscript-1.8".
The main issue is the registration of types including any
parameters. In principle this is a matter for IANA.
