Yeah, exactly. That's what my question was aiming at.
In the meantime I have seen that many addons, which exist for both versions, have two separate addon pages on WOWI. E.g.

https://www.wowinterface.com/downloa...-InFlight.html
and
https://www.wowinterface.com/downloa...-InFlight.html

or
https://www.wowinterface.com/downloa...yBossMods.html
and
https://www.wowinterface.com/downloa...s-Classic.html


Other addons in spite of being compatible with classic and retail only provide one single file. E.g.
https://www.wowinterface.com/downloa...artender4.html

So in this case of bartender you can only download the addon with the retail toc file at WOWI.
Whereas on Curse you can get it either with retail or with classic toc file.

It's probably not that big a deal, because literally nobody is prevented from using an addon only because it does not have the correct version in the toc file.
