What happened to LC version numbers?

I honestly don't know what the fuss is:

DP or RC, who cares, after all as long as they are numbered reasonably 
sequentially we know
that they are leading up to a 'Full' release (which, after all, means 
the start of another SDLC).

I'm working with 8.1.4 at the moment and having lots of fun with the 
8.1.6 DVs (dirty versions).
