Personally, I still find this too restrictive.  My proposal would be to 
consider the version attribute as part of the process identifier -- 
effectively making two processes with the same name+namespace but with 
different version identifiers completely unrelated from an 
implementation standpoint.  The deployment rules for two such processes 
would be the same as if they did not share common name+namespace.
