Question about tag-format in SISR specification

Hi,
    We, at LumenVox, have been supporting the 2004 specification of
SISR. Now we're trying to move on with the latest specification. There
have been quite a few major changes in the latest specification.
However, the tag-format can still only assume either semantics/1.0 or
semantics/1.0-literals. A change in the tag version number is something
that is really needed. Something like semantics/1.1 or semantics/2.0.
 
    Most of our clients use grammars that follow the older
specification, so we would definitely want to be backward compatible for
some time. People that test and rate our products go with the latest
available standards, so we need to to be compatible with the new
specification too. But, with same version numbers for two drastically
different specifications, it wouldn't be easy to distinguish one from
the other. The specification documents do not address this issue.
 
    Why is the version number not being changed with every
specification? Will the next specification have a change in the tag
version number, or do you suggest any ways of handling the issue?
 
    Thank you.
 
Regards,
Shyam
