Then we would need to make sure to use this tag, otherwise its
presence or absence should not affect the semantics of the file, I

But I don't see why is it a big deal to add 'version': 1, since both
of these solutions will increase the size of file by one line.  Adding
a field looks simpler, more easily understandable, and keeps
compatibility with JSON.
