Probably not; but there needs to be a good reason to do it. It has to
be implemented in dpkg, apt, testing, and everything else that worries
about conflicts, and to ensure upgrades work okay, can't be used for
a release after it's rolled out (so, assuming a release once a year,
not until early 2006). Do you care enough?

Cheers,
