Regardless of the layout we choose, we should be encouraging our  
users to specify the spec version using a version range, because if  
we are releasing a new version, it generally means we are fixing a  
spec compliancy problem.  Spec compliancy is a serious issue and we  
should be doing our best to make sure our users get the fixes  
quickly.  I also think we should be using them internally in our poms  
for the same reason, so that as people add dependencies on our specs  
to their projects they don't get into incompatible situations where  
one of their dependency is using version 1.0.1 and some other  
dependency is using version 1.0.3.  Version ranges will make  
everyone's life easier.
