The problem is not that people frequently switch versions, but that some
distros like RedHat Enterprise Linux still ship with Emacs 21.  For
example org-mode dropped emacs 21 support at 6.27, so version 6.26
should be displayed in package.el running in emacs 21, although the
newest version is 6.30.
