I've always found the X.Org versioning scheme unintuitive. This is
actually for the first time after ~5 years of contributing to open
source graphics that I finally understand how the X versioning works.
Granted, I had never been interested in it anyway.

If you need to have a web page on x.org that explains it, that alone
is an indication that it's too complicated.
