  If we have "blown" the issue of compatible evolution of a URI, then I think

We had the same issue for MathML.

MathML 2 (2nd Ed) does re-use the "short" URI for MathML 2 (1st Ed)
although that is a different short uri from MathML 1.
At the suggestion of the W3C Publication team we made this explicit
in the formal frontmatter section of the MathML 2 Rec, which states

  This version:

  Latest MathML 2 version:

  Latest MathML Recommendation:

In ther words all three of those URI currently give you the same
document, but

will always give you MathML 2.0 2nd ed.

Will give you MathML 2.1 or MathML 2.0 3rd edition should there ever be
such a thing.

will give you MathML 3 if there will ever be such a thing.

The MathML version of xmlspec dtd and stylesheets have some support for
this frontmatter style,
