Good analogy indeed!

With Firefox extensions, I had to set the max version to 99 to avoid having them deactivated
at each upgrade (required the tweaking of the configuration files of each extension). I think
that they changed the behavior so that they are by default re-used at upgrade now, they have
listened to their users.

A max version is too much troubles. What version to set? The current one? The next major one?
We don't know what will be the changes in the future so how to determine the max version?
