Because there is no issue? Both 2.0r1 and 2.0.1 achieve the same purpose,
and 2.0r1 is advantageous marketing-wise. To get Debian in to people's
hands, we need to be CD-vendor friendly, which means 2.0r1.

There are no disadvantages to calling it 2.0r1, but there are advantages.
Futhermore, no change is proposed -- this scheme was used for 1.3.
