A colleague, Jim King,   submitted a note about the methods used for
managing versioning of PDF, as a contribution to the ISO PDF
standard (PDF ownership has moved to ISO, and the committee
is considering a new version after ISO 32000-1, I believe).

The paper:

Referred to Jim's blog entry:
http://blogs.adobe.com/insidepdf/2009/08/pdf_evolution_and_compatibilit.html

Although there are differences between PDF and HTML
in deployment, the compatibility goals (new versions of
software handles old files, old software gracefully handles
new files) are quite similar.
