No written policy that I know of.

My idea: All user-visable changes should note when they were introduced.
There are many people who use current docs with very old apache versions,
and these people will be lost without proper version info.

With regard to 2.0/2.2: this is a little bit of a sticky issue.  I don't
see any need to have the docs the same when the features differ.  I guess
the only proper way to do it is to say "This feature is available in 2.1
and later" in the 2.1 docs.  But then you will need to adjust both sets of
docs if you backport the change.  Ugly.
