Notification formats are registered under a name, required to be
globally unique. Normally, the name uses a DNS domain name (or at
least, the root of the domain name) owned by the organisation that
defines the format to ensure uniqueness.
A particular format might have multiple versions defined as the application evolves. Increasing minor version numbers are used for backward-compatible changes, while a change that is incompatible requires a new major version number.
In the following table, the version number is linked to the format specification.
