I disagree with that proposed design principle.  Fundamentally, if you add features you are creating a new version.  Firefox 5.0 would implement a different "HTML" than Firefox 7.0.  It would be a mistake not to capture that in version identification.

I do STRONGLY agree with the design principle of additive behavior, and "don't break the web".
