That sounds sane to me. IIUC it shouldn't impact the release team. The
version number ends up being quite ugly, but in that precise case
prettiness is not a primary goal.

It may impact packagers in some corner cases so I'd engage with them to
check (#openstack-packaging ?) *and*, like Doug recommends, wait for
after icehouse release to make the change.
