Q: (MY) Why not just create a default "Version 0" for everything on the backend?

A: (DW) If we did this .... we still need to figure out what to do with that with the content later. Creating a version signals intent. But generally users just put content in Fedora and don't think about versioningFuture changes would need to be versioned or else the "Version 0" directory would be overwritten with changed content. Versions in OCFL are supposed to be immutable.

A: (RM) OCFL assumes you are being intentional. Fedora does not assume the user is being intentional. It allows for a broader use case of individuals not thinking about what happens when they update content.
