XML-link has no versioning machinery built in... this would be in the
territory of the WebDAV work, if anywhere.  I think (but am not sure)
that there is some machinery for this in the URN work.  Note that versioning
in the general case is a horribly complex problem and tends to have all
sorts of application-specific requirements, so I wouldn't bet too much
in finding a good general solution. -T.
