There are cases where you want to be able to be working on the next
minor release and the next major release at the same time.  A major
release could be a long-term project, during which several minor
releases may happen (with bug fixes and minor features back ported
from the major version in development).  If it is going to take you a
year to make some major change you don't want to put a halt to minor
version releases.
