    May be it would help if the other files not included in one version and
    inherited from another where listed in a simple text file that would map the
    missing inherited files along with their version in which they are defined.

    Why not a mapping file within each version folder that also lists all files with
    their base name (no version appended, to be used as a key), a separate version
    field, and may be a relative URL that links to their respective folder.

    In addition, two other fields may be of interest: a normative/informative
    status; and a base/derived status.

     No need to create a complicate format, a basic CSV file using semicolons
    (similar to the format used by most UCD files) would be enough...
