No ammount of "looks better" beats "there's an upgrade path from our
*stable* release" or "doesn't break users' current expectations".
I skimmed the mentioned URLs and I didn't find anything that came close
to a "rationale". I did find the obvious "where does 'kernel-image'
leave Foo Kernel?" which still doesn't beat the two arguments against
the change that I mention above.
That said, what exactly is the problem kernel-image-x.y.z providing a
kernel image for *bsd or hurd or whatever on the matching platform?
