Subject: RE: [xliff] proposed solutions for CSPRD 138 (Unique Particle Attribution) - version attribute

Hi Yves,

I think having a version on the core makes sense. It is an easy way for processors to identify what to expect from the core even if they do not support Namespaces in XML. Supporting modules but not namespaces seem like a bad idea so for the modules using the namespace as the version is probably ok.

I don't think we necessarily need to release a new version of the whole specification to add a new module, as long as it has a TC namespace, now that we have the URN matching rule and no explicit references from core to modules. I agree that it might seem odd that a new module is a separate document while the existing ones are not but there is no technical obstacle any more.
