I use the Versions data element for a "version" descriptor, to denote a "cycle",
or "time-frame" for the Project.  i.e., to describe the period of time that this
particular Project is targetted for or contains, the "run-time" for radio
productions, the week or month for tape ministries ("week of 12/02/02"), maybe
the "title" for another type of production ("American Composers").  Many of my
clients projects are cyclical in nature, doing essentially the same production
sequences over and over again, but with different "content" for different
periods of time...

Actually, with Version, we inherit from the Module.  The Type is set

Thanks for the suggestion, Mike.
