We could implement workarounds, of course.  The more, the messier.

In the case of CC-mode, I still don't know what's so much better about
putting the version in cc-defs.el's `c-version` variable.

At least in the case of Tramp, I believe I understand the problem to be
that Michael doesn't want tools to modify human-written files, but that
explanation doesn't work for CC-mode.

"Use some standard format" is exactly what "Version:" is.
