As far as I know it is intentional to make it clearer to parsing tools
that there was a difference. If they used a _ that would break some
existing tools and if they used . (dot) it would break a lot more.
Using the + was found to break the least of the ones that were being
looked at in Fedora 27? days when this was being set up. [Basically
various versions were tried, various tools were tested and all kinds
of fun and 'laughter' when you find that your Nagios, corporate
antivirus, etc now assumes your architecture is .885 versus .x86_64 or
some other item.

Law. All those moments will be lost in time... like posts on  BBS...
time to reboot.
