FWIW, RDDL v1 (http://www.rddl.org/) was explicitly designed to handle this
case.

You can use the construct:

<div id="v4">
	<rddl:resource ... />
	<rddl:resource ... />
</div>	
<div id="v5">
	<rddl:resource ... />
	<rddl:resource ... />
</div>

To create labelled "containers" of resources.

For example look at <div id="RELAXNG"> ... </div> which "contains" all of
the RELAXNG modules. Similarly a <div> could "contain" all of a version
specific list of resources.

I've been thinking about the relationship of namespaces to version
identifiers for a while.  Perhaps the version attribute could be relative
and then appended to the ns uri, ie ns#version=5 or
ns#version/5 or ns/version/5?
