Versioning /is/ implicit in the draft specification, but is deliberately
concealed.  A document starting "<!DOCTYPE html>" is, by definition,
HTML 5 or later (and later authorities may place an upper bound
on how much later).  Why there is this resistance to making the
version explicit is beyond my comprehension.
