Are you trying to say that we only need to make, at most, one minor or
major change per release?  That seems to be what you are saying. 
Otherwise, we need to have a somewhat more specific guideline for just how
long is "too" long.

Are you saying that if module authors want to have their module compile
properly on development versions then they have to make up their own
system of figuring out versioning since the MMN won't be changed?
