I don't think so.  Particularly with -without-texmf-dir a version of
preview.sty that is intimately connected with AUCTeX gets installed
into the Emacs tree.  I don't think it makes sense giving different
version numbers to this integrated version from the encompassing
AUCTeX, or from external preview versions.

Well, yes.  That is why we have something like

(defcustom preview-default-preamble
  '("\\RequirePackage[" ("," . preview-default-option-list)

There is some leeway involved, but whenever preview.el requires
something new, we are going to have to bump that date.
