Sure. But it is a pragmatic trade-off against the potential for disruption and flow-ons with other standards. As I wrote elsewhere, I think the version number system is inadequate: a three-part (for example) would give the Core WG more wiggle room. major.minor.edition where a parser should accept any edition, older versions of the minor, and only needs except one major number. Whatever, it needs to be better defined. Cheers Rick Jelliffe
