Do we want to (or should we) say anywhere that the alternate "version" should 
have the same functionality or purpose as the original "version" (re: use of 
the word "version")?  The reason I'm asking is that in some W3C Quality 
Assurance documents (for example, [1]) a "new version" means "a significant 
change or enhancement in functionality"?   Even though this reference is to 
a "new version of a specification", there may be some confusion with use of the 
word "version" in multiple contexts within W3C?
