Re: [dxwg] the definition of a version should not be limited to numbers (#1442)

Please note that the current definition is complemented by [a usage note](

> DCAT does not prescribe how a version name / identifier should be specified, and refers for guidance to [DWBP]'s [Best Practice 7: Provide a version indicator](

So, we are not prescribing the use of numbers only. 

For the records, the definition of `dcat:version` re-uses [the one of `pav:version`](, where the notion of "number" is used in a broad sense - quoting:

> The version number of a resource. This is a freetext string, typical values are "1.5" or "21". The URI identifying the previous version can be provided using prov:previousVersion.
> This property is normally used in a functional way, although PAV does not formally restrict this.
