[Gstreamer-openmax] About OpenMAX IL compatibility

I would like to clarify how the different OpenMAX IL versions should
work, specially how a client should communicate with different
implementations with different versions.
The specification says that 1.1 implementations should be backward
compatible with 1.0. That means if a client is using 1.0 API then the
implementation should still work correctly.
That makes perfect sense for clients, as the OpenMAX IL standard seems
to be focused on.
But what exactly do they mean by 1.0 and 1.1? What about 1.0.2 or
1.1.1? Should 1.1.1 be backwards compatible with 1.1?
To me the only explanation possible is that by 1.0 they mean the
latest revision of 1.0, which in this case is 1.0.2, and 1.1 is
So a 1.1 compliant implementation should be compliant with 1.1.1
actually, or any current version.
Do you think that's the case?
