The difference is that we know there weren't frequent updates at 2, 7, 4, 12... year intervals after the 1606 and 1694 publications. In the Ulster case, if another doc is published in 2012 with minor tweaks, are we going to register 2012ulst?

The publication dates of two specific texts. I don't see this as different from 2006ulst.

The tagging application here, for instance, is a text which is being translated into Ulster Scots, using this relatively new, standardized orthography.
