I started by facing a similar use case - drafts of specifications.

When you implemented against a particular draft it is useful to be able to find it. But the 80% case is "the latest version (perhaps with some status or characteristic)".

The behaviour I am trying to catch is attempts to remove the older versions from search results by marking them "don't index", while allowing for the 80% case to be simple - you get the one that superseded everything unless you want it to have some feature described that was removed, or something like that.
