I had hoped to have the spec approved in time to cut releases around
the time Oslo did (1 week before feature freeze for applications,
to allow us to merge the requirements cap before applications
generate their RC1). At this point, I agree that we should go with
the most recently tagged versions where possible. It sounds like
we have a couple of libs that need releases, and we should evaluate
those on a case-by-case basis, defaulting to not updating the stable
requirements unless absolutely necessary.

Based on what's in the requirements list now, I think that means capping
