It is not that much black and white. There are nuances with their  
benefits and drawbacks, IMHO.

Yes no information tied to the content.

It is very difficult for validator developers to create a useful tool  
because of this. We are forced for now to guess the versioning by  
analyzing which properties are here or not.

The scripts have indeed no version information but the test for it is  
"working" or "not working. The developer develops for a specific  
	"Download PHP version X.",
	"You can't use this function  with PHP version X."
It is a closed/wall garden environment as in my scripts are limited  
by the capabilities of the libraries installed on the server.

Full version mechanism. It is call year. I can't understand a 300  
years old text properly if I don't have access to the year it has  
been published. In fact, human language is a rare case where each  
word have a version with a span of years.
