I don't think there's much room for confusion here. Saying "version" 
without further qualification will use context, so it should be clear 
that it's the recipe's version.

After all, it's clear that the Recipes group consists of add-ons.

...hmm... thinking of versions: there should be an entry that says for 
which versions of PmWiki the recipe is supposed (or known?) to work. 
E.g. Tested-On: or Prerequisites:, where each header lists which recipes 
and what versions of recipes/PmWiki need to be installed.

Coming back to the original question, if there's a line saying
   Prerequisites: PmWiki 2.1.15
then it should be clear that
   Version: 1.2.3
isn't the PmWiki version :-)
