I don't think I follow your line of thought.

What version information?  Like libvorbis 1.2.1?  If so, I can't see
much of a point in that.

How?  RTP specifications are using their own media types, sometimes
coupled with "side-kick"  (e.g. audio/vorbis-config).  And what good
there would be in using a version information here?  All Vorbis
streams for instance are (hopefully) supposed to work in past and
future decoders.
