Sure. But it is a pragmatic trade-off against the potential for disruption
and flow-ons with other standards.
As I wrote elsewhere, I think the version number system is inadequate:
a three-part (for example) would give the Core WG more wiggle room.
where a parser should accept any edition, older versions
of the minor, and only needs except one major number. Whatever,
it needs to be better defined.
