Andrew makes a good point.  In fact, if you are clever, you can have limited
forward as well as backward compatibility, i.e., your app doesn't choke when
it sees a future version, it just grabs what it can use.  I laid out such an
approach using XML in my book Designing Distributed Applications (Wrox
Press, ISBN 1-861002-27-0).  That sort of thing depends on how much
"outdated" data you want to keep around and how clever your vocabulary is.
