No, it doesn't. There are way too many variants of versioning schemes out there in use by so many OSS projects that the distributors and vendors need to be prepared to encounter any variant you can imagine.

What matters is quality (here I do agree with you). A versioning scheme can help to establish certain rules of what to do and more importantly what to *not* do on a given version pattern or branch. And with the current rate of successful releases, apparently the current rules either were not enforced well enough or otherwise were not good enough and thus need to be changed. A new versioning scheme then could help to establish new, hopefully better rules.

Just my 2¢.
