The meaning of the major.minor mmn differs.  They aren't mutually

If we revert (we can) then every bump to 2.0 major mmn (lets say
by a 3rd party who changes the API internally) results in a date
which is forward of 2.1's mmn.  This is simply badness.

Since 2.0 modules, via the evolving API, no longer remain safely
compatible with 2.1, I'm of the mind that the mmn's should be
segregated by MODULE_MAGIC_COOKIE.
