@version attribute in iati-activities AND iati-activity

Some clarification is needed around the deployment of this, and whether it is needed in both elements.  It can be considered that using it in iati-activity may be useful if users work with individual activities (as in the case of the datastore) but this needs more thought,  In theory - one could publish a file to 1.01, yet have activities (and one assumes data) that are pegged against later versions.

    We agree. 

    What need to do some work to assess the impact of this, and perhaps know a bit more about how the attributes are being used, and who by.

    In the meantime we should improve guidance for data users and tell people what the state of play is.

    Deferred to 1.05 or 2.01
