I agree that semantic versioning is only part of the solution. In
OpenConfig versioning we have the concept of release bundles that have a
semver, these contain modules that are known to work together - and are the
base for compliance descriptions. The individual modules semver has been
useful to mark where there are backwards incompatible changes in an
individual module.

On top of release bundles, we also have feature bundles which describe a
particular implementation's requirements for the modules. A feature bundle
is a description of paths within a release bundle.

We're continuing to gain experience with how well this works, but certainly
I don't see the need for the bundles alleviating the need for the semantic
versions for modules.
