Considering that versioning has been discussed and rejected many times 
on this list; and the fact that CSS was designed to be, and is being 
very carefully designed to remain, both forwards and backwards 
compatible, it is extremely unlikely that any form of versioning will be 
introduced.  To do so would either completely break backwards 
compatibility, have no benefit whatsoever, or any other reason that has 
been discussed many times before on this list.
