What precisely are the interoperability issues? This is not a matter of
server-to-server communication. If the server to which I connect uses
hashes and the server to which you connect uses sequence numbers and
Matt's server uses the names of people who post in this thread, how does
interoperability break? The only way that interop would break here is if
clients are treating versions as something other than opaque, which they
are not supposed to do.

Please explain.
