CrossRef did have a blog post about this a few years ago
mentioning the possibility of updating the guidelines. It seems like
DataCite has gone much further with allowing/recommending new DOIs for
later versions of the same "work", perhaps because datasets are more
likely to be updated over time.

All this is helpful discussion, by the way - the choice of possible
elements has expanded to "related-article", "self-uri" and/or
"sub-article" :-)

It's worth noting that the web, with URLs for each version and link
relations in the HTML/HTTP headers[1], has pretty much solved this
problem already, so mimicking those link relations in XML seems like
the most straightforward answer.
