I do not think that we have spent a lot of time on versioning.  We spent
a few hours in Denmark, and that's all.  A few hours are not at all good 
enough for this difficult topic.

Had I not cared existing documents conformant to both the 1st edition
Ecma OOXML and ISO/IEC 29500:2007, I would have proposed a mechanism 
for distinguishing the 1st edition OOXML and ISO/IEC 29500:2007. 
Moreover, when the next version of Parts 1 and 4 introduce significantly
inconsistent changes, I may well propose a versioning attribute.
