> If we want to let the server select the version, I think that we should require the client to send it's original version number using TP so that the server can determine if there was a downgrade attack.

This does.  The client lists all its supported versions.  We can - as is customary - insist that the client puts its preferences first.  But a consequence of this design is that the server ultimately decides which version is used.
