XHTML+RDFa 1.1 'the most recent version'...

just because I read it in the current draft as before similar
formulations in other recommendations, what does it
exactly mean, that in section '3. Additional RDFa Processing Rules'
is mentioned:
"If the value does not match a defined version, or there is no @version 
attribute, then the processing rules for the most recent version of 
XHTML+RDFa must be used."?

More precisely:
a) 'does not match' for whom - the author of the document, when writing it or
for the reader/interpreter of the document when reading it?
(Implication: an old interpreter may not know the newest version;
and obviously an old document was not written taking into account a version,
that is newer than that when the document was written)
b) 'most recent version' from which point of view? The creation date of the
document? The publication date (last update) of the document? The 
publication date (last update) of a the current viewer of the document?
The current date? If one of this - is the most recent version the newest 
version published before such a date?

Best wishes
