I think that adding a category for each version of Ubuntu that a
document applies to would be a simple, decent solution to the problem.
The major failing of this approach, as I see it, is that such categories
lie at the bottom of the page and aren't very visible.
Some time ago, Adam Sommer wrote a macro which addresses this problem in
a more visible way . As far as I remember, the macro has been tested
and is pretty much ready to deploy. Perhaps we should try to get this
installed on the live server?
