Hmm... not sure I like this. I like it until the "If advanced to Final, 
version is revved to 2.0" part. I'd rather see 1.0 be the final, with 
minor and major revisions after that being improvements, extensions, or 
adaptations to the final spec. Not sure what Draft and Active would be 
then, except maybe versioned as "1.draft" and "1.active". I'm thinking 
about doing a similar versioning scheme for PingID, to differentiate 
between stable and dev releases (I don't like the Linux kernel's 
even/odd scheme).
