It is a port of the old system.

I have seen RC and other terms abused (as new features appearing in
next RC, not just bug fixes, etc). People in the end seem to be paying
less and less attention to terms, and that makes worse for those that
try to stick to "the label says X, it means X". See the big noise
created around KDE 4.0 that was intended as developers release and
instead got lots of critics for being unfinished (errrm... what is not
a developers release if not that...).

It sounds like a nice proposal. A similar reason is what has pushed me
to ask about what people want from tabs (and I already think I found
one global issue with current method, if it gets "raise on hover" it
is going to be nasty).
