This is is an editorial problem due to our step by step re-iteration
process.  The dropped draft-ietf-openpgp-rfc4880bis-10.txt had this text:

   Implementations MUST generate version 5 signatures when using a
   version 5 key.  Implementations SHOULD generate V4 signatures with
   version 4 keys.  Implementations MUST NOT create version 3
   signatures; they MAY accept version 3 signatures.

which should explain above.  But right in the course of re-iteration
Paul and me should have noticed that and adjusted it accordingly.


Shalom-Salam,
