Yes.  Or even variations of the same upstream version.

I'm really pro-stream here because these identifiers have
nothing to do with upgrade paths and some modules or module
stacks wouldn't even have any concept of numbered, progressive
builds/releases.  It's just a label.

I would save the word "version" to identify updates within
these "streams".

I agree on not using "version" for this. I'm not completely sold on
"stream", partly because we talk about "upstream" and "downstream" so
much, and this is unrelated to that. How about "branch"? That fits with
the idea of "rebase" for switching between them....

How about "series", as in "the PHP 7 series"?

Some people around modularity started using "generation" recently, this is imho also good word.
