I suppose this isn't a compelling argument, but it's just rather
strange that two different schemes/standards are in play here.  As a
temporary transition, the wording could say non-native nmus can be
versioned with either +nmun or n.n with +nmun favored as that will
become the standard in the future.

Best wishes,
