What a coincidence, I was going to recommend essentially the same thing.

My first major point is that we have never more than 3 figures to the right of 
the decimal place, and I see Aristotle agrees.

Beyond that, increment the thousanths place for minor releases, and optionally 
increment the tenths place after the decimal for semi-major changes.

Since we should be free to increment the wholes digit more readily, we probably 
wouldn't need to have more than 1 digit, the tenths, for semi-majors, if at all.

Another key point is, because we can be more free to increment the wholes digit 
without it having a special meaning, we can also be free to change any meaning 
or pattern in the fractional digits each time we do that.

But I wholeheartedly support the exact proposal Aristotle gave above.  And yes, 
I saw the "6" shift just a coincidence.
