The underlying premise, for me, of choosing .4 or .5  was that presently we
discontinue support after 5 years/releases.  A new .0 would come out just
as we discontinue the previous .0

As an added idea, if switching to major.patch, would be to make 10.0.x but
then go to 11.x. Though that's somewhat easier cognitively it would
probably be harder for developers that just ripping off the bandaid.
