Isn't WiX already in semver format?  3.11.1 (+.0 to make win32 happy ... ProductVersion is semver basically )

I switched IsWiX (now 4.12.6)  over to semver format when I was forced to drink the kool-aid at my day job and I haven't had any problems with it.

I know Rob doesn't like semver, but nuget is built on it so we need to
follow the rules. I think we need to name the nuget package something like
WixToolset.Util.Wixext-v4 and just start it at v1.0.0.0. Then every time
there's a breaking change, just rev the major version.
