Why? It's only a number.

I've just been looking at:

http://commons.apache.org/releases/versioning.html#Interface-Compatible_Changes

This does not list JRE changes as being interface-incompatible, so
perhaps I was wrong about a JRE change requiring a major release.

It would be useful to know what standards other projects use, but I've
not been able to find any others so far.

I'd like to see what others think about this.
