This is an interesting idea, but it also strikes me as the kind of minor optimization that shouldn't make the cut at this stage in the process. I understand @kazuho 's point that it might ease v2 transition, but the VN code has been stable for a long time and there are lots of things to think about here.

This also puts version choice in the hands of the server, rather than client. I'm not sure how I feel about that. If clients are picking a version based on their resource constraints, then this is a bad thing.
