Rick is exactly on the mark.  The same system is also used to ensure that 
the notebooks are always launched in the installed version of Mathematica 
(or Publicon or Calculation Center or whatever the case may be) with the 
highest version number, and that appropriate fallback strategies are used 
if the product that created the notebook isn't installed.
