GeoTools dropped the first number without counting the 1.x history because
2.0 was a total rewrite, with a completely different focus.
GeoServer went to 2.x because of user facing reasons, and had two modules
significantly changed (config storage and UI),
but for example two others, WFS and WMS, had a major API change without any
major release bump (when switched from old to new dispatcher,
e.g., the WMS one happened around 2010, in ),
or think when modularisation and Spring were introducted, which I believe
was between 1.3.x and 1.4.x, large change without any real outside notice.

This made me do the  "7 + 14 + 1, counting also 2.0.0 in the mix" math,
version 1.x went up to 1.7, version 2.x is going to be at 2.14
in September, and we also need to count 2.0 as a release. All in all it has
been a continuous stream of changes, 2.0 received
a bump because the changes were "in user's face" and using the product felt
different, at least to admins.

Anyways, as said, I was just "thinking out loud", it's not a firm proposal
to switch to 22.x, I was more interested in a discussion
about it rather than hellbent on changing the version number per se.
