I'm more worried about confusion in future. To to me it simply seems easier to
bump one integer now than to document and explain (to users & new developers)
why we have two "ones" which mean something else.

Code-wise it is just an integer.

Also, it can simplify logic in future when we decide to do another
incompatible change in DNS tree because we will have only one integer to test
(instead of checking two separate version attribute in DNS tree & domain level).

If you really want to avoid unforeseen issues rather go and get rid of
"major.minor" logic we have in the topology plugin right now :-)
