From: Fam Zheng <famz@redhat.com>

Refuse to open higher version for safety.

Although we try to be compatible with published VMDK spec, VMware has
newer version from ESXi 5.1 exported OVF/OVA, which we have no knowledge
what's changed in it. And it is very likely to have more new versions in
the future, so it's not safe to open them blindly.
