I do have this in my queue for a technical review as I think you requested a while ago, but I kind of held of because it sort of blew up again.

I don't expect to find any major technical issues though - if support for multiple API versions in parallel is necessary then I'm sure this is broadly speaking the correct approach.

You and I disagree on whether support for multiple API versions in parallel is required - actually that's not quite true as I have no problem with the idea in principle but I just don't think there is any realistic way we can achieve it.

Separately a lot of people think that the object model should be versioned separately to the API version, which you don't feel is necessary, but which I tend to agree with I think. In fact that ties in very much with my thoughts about multiple API versions in that I think there is no problem with multiple API versions where the object model remains the same but what people really want to do is to enhance the object model and I very doubtful that we can support multiple versions of that in parallel.
