But, that means the document will sometimes be requiring higher
versions than actually necessary.

For example, suppose we work with Neon 0.24.5 for the next three
years. Then it's better to say we require "Neon 0.24.5 or higher"
than "Neon 3.30.2", because people might already have a perfectly good
Neon library on their system. (Of course, we might up our recommended
Neon past 0.24.5, but that still doesn't mean we have to require the
bleeding edge of everything all the time.)

IOW, this is about _minimum_ requirements.
