We'd have to specify the rules for these fields.

For example, to match the behavior of client_version and
server_version, maybe requiring later version fields match the
previous version is best?

I don't have a strong opinion on this.  It's a little more complex, so
we should try to write it up and make sure it's not too complicated.

It would also be good if we could think of examples uses for it.
