The version is not overly significant. It limits the flexibility perhaps,
but you can always extend it to become RSS v. 2+ without changing any
URL's. Feed readers support both equally well and should probably not
reward or rank RSS 2.0 over RSS 0.9.2 or RSS 1.0. It is similar to CSS and
CSS 2. One is a superset of the other and extensions can be made quite
