It introduces a problem with the odd minor number semantics, but that might
be solvable [1]. It also begs the question... "What happens when we do bump
the major number?" Start the next series at 3.20? That's not totally crazy.

Though I made a joke about it in 2004, I don't think it's a terrible idea.
But it should be well thought out before we do it.
