Thanks for pointing out that directive, whose existence I had forgotten. Assuming we put the 'redefinePermssion' directives in place on the trunk, why shouldn't we leave the version number as is? I consider the rename a bugfix, not a feature, and if we make it backwared compatible, there is no reason to bump the major version.
