This may all be true (or not true, I leave that subject to discussion), 
but after some time, this blatant advocacy gets incredibly irritating.

If the FPC team decides to change the versioning system, they will 
do so, based on the needs of the team and after considering the 
available alternatives. Till then, any advocacy is just annoying 
and largely irrelevant.

We got the message meanwhile: we're blessed with some intelligence, I hope...
