I'm not comfortable having versioning at the test case level.  My 
inclination is to rev the entire suite.  This meshes well with our 
internal work scheduling pattern.  We can at least plan a full rev

This is an issue, but luckily the messaging spec doesn't change all that 
often.  My suggestion is to have major revs match major spec revs, and 
minor revs match spec minor revs, then have the last number our internal 
rev.  So ebXML Messaging 2.1 would have test suites versioned between 
2.1.0 and 2.1.infinity.

Ok, we should discuss this one further.  I think we have instituted some 
of this, but I think it has to be more overt.
