It seems clearest to omit the point release if the image includes updates
through the build date, and to include the point release if each RPM is the
same version as on the ISO (aside from any Docker-specific additional RPMs
or similar directly relevant tweaks).

The current Google Compute Engine CentOS images include updates as of build
time but do not include the point release in the image name. We might
include it in the description, I forget.
