>From the GFDL:

  Each version of the License is given a distinguishing version number.  If
  the Document specifies that a particular numbered version of this License
  "or any later version" applies to it, you have the option of following
  the terms and conditions either of that specified version or of any later
  version that has been published (not as a draft) by the Free Software
  Foundation.  If the Document does not specify a version number of this
  License, you may choose any version ever published (not as a draft) by
  the Free Software Foundation.

Notice the "if"s.  If you specify a particular version number that is the
only one that applies.  This section is not as clear as it could be, but it
does not require that you accept future versions of the GFDL.

(I do not endorse the GFDL.)
