RE: Fwd: [xml-dev] Data versioning strategy: address semantic, relationship, and syntactic changes?

The problem then is may be multi-variate:  a change breaks one system but
not another.  As in does not break the processing application but does break
the help description of the running system.  It isn't just *identifying* the
change; it is capturing the real and non-real time effects.

That is the difference between *a* version (identifying the resource) and
version control (identifying and executing the process).  Not a new topic
here or elsewhere.

Exactly.  Furthermore, breaking/non-breaking is a function of at least: a) 
the verison of the specification the author had in mind when authoring a 
document b) the version of the specification the receiver had in mind when 
interpreting the document and crucially c) the particular purpose for 
which the document is being read
