Also, I really dislike the "use .5 for -and-a-half releases" in the original proposal. For one thing you cannot exclude the risk that 5 point releases would be needed for one reason or another before an +1/2 release. And it also makes it impossible to distinguish between the "regular point update" part of such a release and the "+1/2" part. Finally, a new scheme would also need to provide for "CD image rebuilds" shortly after a release as has happened in the past. See for example "3.1 rev6a" on http://www.debian.org/CD/releases/.
