issue44206, issue44337, and issue44338 converted things dependent on ma_version_tag to ma_keys->dk_version.

I propose to remove ma_version_tag and save 8 bytes of space in dict. I've prepared a draft PR to do that. However, I'd like to wait for some time before merging it. This will make it easier to revert a PR in one of those issues should the need arise.

Hmm I'm suddenly having second thoughts. I wonder if there's future use cases I might be missing here from PEP 509?

Closing this for now as it seems PEP 509 may need to be repealed:

Sorry for the noise everyone :(.
