Gotcha. For some reason, I have trouble remembering that.

Yes, it would make it easier and IMO it would make the versioning more semantically useful.
Even so, it may not be worth the additional effort of the separate release cycle given that
the TCK unit tests all seem to be in a pretty good state. (With the above fixes we'll pass
all but 2 of the TCK unit tests, and those are due to our own bugs.)

There's another thread [1] on this list related to this topic, and I'll post some questions
