I think the fact that everyone pretty much accepts that the XML change
should have been numbered 2.0 and not 1.1 is really an argument in favor
of well-known major.minor semantics.

As a pragmatic matter, it's a royal pain in the neck to do interop debugging
using date-based URL's.  Sitting there on the phone with someone reading
dates "041113" vs "040113" is a real pain.  Anyone who's worked on following
various drafts of WS-Security and its errata will know -- been there,
done that, don't wnat to do it again.
