I don't understand what problem you're trying to convey. The
suggestion is basically a cosmetic change, where instead of (and then if necessary and so on) we'd have
14.0.0 (and then if necessary 14.0.1 and so on). How does that
change your packaging process? Is the concern that you can't know in
advance what the release version number for a given service is going
to be?
