You can by the data length.

But yes, there is Phoenix 3.0 (1998), T13 3.0 (2004) and T13 4.0 (2010),
although the latter seems to be stalled in final draft; according to the
T13 logs it went through final ballot resolution but doesn't seem to
have actually been published, unless it got merged into another document
(which is possible).
