I hate Elisp (almost as bad as X) for being so shoddy about validating

Yes, I was wondering about that, too, but the format seems to be
unspecified in GNU Emacs, as well. Should we pick one?
No, I mean whether it's a cons or a string. In the part somebody cut
custom-add-package-version takes a VERSION argument. However, I
suspect the VERSION argument is not just a version string, but rather
a (PACKAGE . VERSION) cons as documented above for the
I think that picking a format for either PACKAGE or VERSION is not
going to work. Just let them be strings and we'll deal with
inconsistencies in `customize-package-emacs-version-alist' if and when
it ever bugs somebody.
