use of the word 'version' in cederqvist and "cvs update"

Although Sec 1.2 of the 1.11.20 cederqvist says "the word version is almost never used in this document", I have found quite a number of places where it is used, probably inappropriately. The maintainer of the manual may want to search for the word "version" throughtout the manual and make sure it is used properly. For example, the first sentence in Sec 4.9 says "Sometimes a working copy's revision has extra data ...it might be ... restricted to versions (revisions?) prior to a certain date .." And I think it requires some clarification of what "restricted" means. That is, what is restricted? Later in the same section: "People often want to retrieve an old version (revision?)..." In the second figure in that section, there is this "VERS: 1.1" Apparently it is due to RCS. RCS possibly uses the word "version". I just wonder whether the output of "cvs update" should change that to "revision" in order to be consistent with the CVS terminiology and the output of other commands.
