No, because a customisation group is not a package.  I'm not actually
aware of any places where defgroup/defface/etc. :version tags are
currently used, but since Glenn put some effort into adding them[1], I
think project.el should continue to use them consistently.

The :version tag can also indicate "was changed in some notable way," so
I don't think that matters too much, and as I said I don't think the
information is currently used anywhere.
