One way to handle this is to add RFC Editor notes to the relevant text 
pieces to tell the RFC Editor to remove the text (and therewith the 
Sec-WebSocket-Version header). This makes sure we always have a version 
indicator even in the last draft (because we're never sure it will be 
the last) but won't have a version in the final base protocol.
