non deterministic any element???

After reading the Versioning XML Languages Draft, I am a bit confused on why the any element is non-deterministic.  Below, I whipped together 3 schemas.  Say A is schema version1, B is schema version2(same namespace), and C is companyX extending version 1.  Why would the xml below the schema's be non-deterministic???  ie. if I throw doc B at a program that only knows schema A or throw doc C at a program that only knows schema B, etc.  thanks for any help in understanding here.  I am really just trying to understand section 9.1(http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/doc/versioning-20031003#d0e971)
thanks,
dean
