You are not the only ass about the problem.

I have complained bitterly about this, apparently to deaf ears.

I dislike this version numbering scheme hugely. The implications to CentOS
not being the same "version" as RHEL is *much* more than just a different
number to those who don't know differently. And those are the people who
make this difference a huge amount of extra work for us.

There's NO reason for this that makes any sense. None.
