Do you think it would be beneficial to have both the point release and
the date? For example:


If you start to try to compare behavior within this image to CentOS
6.5 installed on a normal piece of hardware it might be easier if we
can easily look at the image file name and know what point release to
compare it to.

An argument can also be made that this might spark confusion.
