... it's a legal version number. I find it easier to read an ISO
8601 date encoded release number with the dots in it than one without
them, so I use the dot breaks. It's an aesthetic thing. The most
signifigant portion of the number is read first, reading it from left
to right, regardless of whether there are dots in the number to break
it up visually.
If we enstate a standard, I vote for putting the dot breaks in for
readablity. It's more `apt' to look pleasing.
