This is exactly the solution proposed by Waldemar Horwat for JavaScript 
2.0, using the proposed "namespaces" facility:


I wasn't crazy about it in his proposal, because it starts irrevocably 
polluting the code with a spaghetti of version information, but at least 
in your proposal, you only accumulate this version information until the 
next major release. Once you bump the major version, you can clear out 
all the provide-versions.
