Can we support a three-level DTD version numbering scheme? For
example: 3.0 -> 3.1 -> 3.1.5?
If so, we could treat handlers with two-level version numbers as if
the number ended with a wildcard ("3.1.*"), meaning this handler will
accept any DTD version beginning with 3.1. Only when we make an
incompatible change would a new version of the handler get a
three-level DTD version number, ("3.1.5"), in which case it would be
willing to accept 3.1.<anything above 4>.
