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.
