    Indeed.

    It's not about features. It hasn't been about features for forever.

    So a renumbering would be purely about dropping the numbers to
    something smaller and more easily recognized. The ABI wouldn't change.
    The API wouldn't change. There wouldn't be any big "because we finally
    did xyz".
