Reading again, it looks like version check is not necessary since it
is implied by the presence of this bit per this paragraph.

Page Aligned Request – If Set, indicates the Untranslated Address is
always aligned to a 4096 byte boundary. Setting this bit is
recommended. This bit permits software to distinguish between
implementations compatible with earlier version of this specification
that permitted a requester to supply anything in bits [11:2].
