Not sure what what you mean there but there are many languages that use
a stable namespace but use a version attribute (eg xslt) or stable
namespace and no version indicator at all (eg xhtml, mathml)

That thread appears to have got confused. It starts off discussing

<?xml version="1.1"?>

which is referring to version 1.1 of _XML_ but then it got sidetracked
into a discussion about version 1.1 of XSD schema which is of course
something completely different.
