Because having more versions of the spec is a bug, not a
feature. How many versions will a server or framework be reasonably
expected to support?
Also, note that changing the calling convention ensures that you
can't accidentally run an old application with a server that will be
sending it different information than it expects. This ensures that
we can have clean boundary conditions between spec versions, and can
hopefully just have a few, well-tested and battle-hardened converters.
