They check the same *relative file* to the platform/project directory (so ya can have different
version script per platform).
Makes sense it was done that way in the beginning but could be improved now.

a) Issue is other/newer platforms don't have the 'check for version x'. 

b) More a personal preference for:
<engine name="cordova" version=">=3.0.0"/> 
<engine name="cordova" version=">=3.3.0" platform="android"/>

I can patch the code so that:
<engine name="cordova-android" version=">=3.3.0" />
<engine name="cordova-{$supported_platform} " version=">=3.3.0" />

Still works but is deprecated for 4.0

If "cordova" is meant to check the cli version, from what I can tell hasn't been that way
since Aug 2013
