I think you solicited some links to my blog in the entry.  A couple good
ones are:
http://www.pacificspirit.com/blog/2007/04/19/what_do_version_identifiers
_identify
http://www.pacificspirit.com/blog/2007/04/19/forwards_compatibility_with
_version_s_requires_version_mapping
http://www.pacificspirit.com/blog/2007/04/20/how_to_have_multiple_namesp
aces_per_name

Note: I disagree with the wording of your proposed Good Practice Note.
As I've said repeatedly, if a processor knows about multiple versions of
a language and an instance contains data that could be valid under
multiple versions, then it is very unclear what language version should
be used.

But, this is your blog entry so you can have your opinion and I can post
my opinion as a comment or a blog entry :-)

Cheers,
Dave
