Hi Anne,

>>Web evolve.
This discussion evolves is the similar direction as on the webapps.
I understand your point, I just think of deprecated items and think whether monotonic growth of the spec could be guaranteed forever.
Having versioning is just as a kind of insurance policy for future, just in case some incompatibilities could be appear in the future, even in the long future.

As for me, versioning seems to be the issue for TAG that could be solved once for all WGs and W3C specs consistently.
WGs and interested parties could have some inputs.

Thanks.

Kind regards,
Marcin

Agreed.

No. I think just adding more features to it works fine and does not warrant versioning. This is how features on the Web evolve.
