Subject: Re: [emergency] CAP 1.1 Issue # 11

Patti -

I support the idea of a version number 100%. Clients and servers need to be 
able to do version negotiation. Without this, then interoperability suffers 
(like perhaps none at all). All OGC specs have version numbers as part of 
the interface specification and this information is expressed in each 
interface call or payload encoding. An interesting side benefit is that 
applications can then actually support multiple CAP versions.
