It was already changed for Lenny to replace r1 with .1. Your proposal would give us the following followup of numberings for the first point update of our recent releases: Sarge: 3.1r1 Etch: 4.0r1 Lenny: 5.0.1 Squeeze: 6.0.1 Weezy: 7.1? Our users have come to understand now that 5.0.1 is equivalent to 4.0r1, and that 3.1 is a different full release fom 4.0. Changing it after squeeze to something different yet again buys them and us nothing but unnecessary churn. Stability in numbering is worth a lot more than removing an extra ".0" from the string.
