I understand your concern, but this legacy SCPI protocol was not
officially released. It was just WIP which vendors picked up from very
early releases. Since they are not numbered, it's hard to have specific
compatibles with different versions until v1.0. That's one of the reason
to retain platform specific compatible so that we can add any quirks
based on them if needed.
I will probably add these information in the commit log so that it's
clear why we can't do version based compatible.
