I think it's a good idea to refer to the first version of the spec in
which the feature appeared.  A global search-and-replace would amount
to removing information.  (This is of course not meant to imply that
we've gotten it right everywhere, but that's what I'd like to think is
meant by referring to particular versions.)

If your intent is not to refer to any particular version then you should
just say "SQL", anyhow.
