Apple says [1]:

>WatchKit Apps and App Extensions
>App Extensions and their containing apps must use the same Build Number (CFBundleVersion) and Version Number (CFBundleShortVersionString) as used in the other targets in the Xcode project.

This is something we should validate/enforce/autofix at build time.
