I talked with Leif about this in person and I may be coming around to the

The versioning would follow The PATCH version would
essentially be used to do the version burn on a bad release vote and also
for the LTS versions before the next MAJOR release. The LTS release (which
is a new wrinkle Leif mentioned and I added to the wiki) would be something
the more conservative amongst us. Those who chose to run LTS could test the
other releases as if they were new feature dev releases leading up to the
next LTS release. The more adventurous would run the MINOR updates as they
came out quarterly. It's kinda like the best of both worlds in a way.

We just need to make sure to keep Alan committing on the
incompatible-next-major-release branch. :)
