For Microformats that have an XMDP profile this is at least in part
solved, a page using hCard would, for instance, have the following:

<html profile="http://www.w3.org/2006/03/hcard">

Which clearly references a time-based version of the hCard profile.
Presumably if hCard is updated, then new profile URLs will be

However because hListing is still a draft, there isn't a profile to
link to, so I don't know if there's a solution for you.  The status of
the draft format is so much in flux, it might not be practical to
start 'version numbering' them just yet anyhow.
