This would actually be a nice solution. I could imagine that it also would 
cover a number of other use cases, where it is helpful to have a machine-
readable list of all frameworks which are part of a release.

It could for example be used to detect, when new frameworks have been added. 
There it even would be useful if all versions are the same.
