That numbering concept (for 7.0 at least) makes sense:

"CentOS 7.0-1406 introduces a new numbering scheme that we want to 
further develop into the life of CentOS-7. The 0 component maps to the 
upstream realease, whose code this release is built from. The 1406 
component indicates the monthstamp of the code included in the release ( 
in this case, June 2014 ). By using a monthstamp we are able to respin 
and reissue updated media for things like container and cloud images, 
that are regularly refreshed, while still retaining a connection to the 
base distro version."

Those who care about the upstream version knew that this was derived 
from RHEL 7.0.  Those who don't care about upstream versions but want to 
track monthly rebuilds of cloud images, etc., could distinguish between 
"1406" and (for example) "1407".  But somewhere along the line for 7.1, 
the "component that maps to the upstream release" was dropped, and we 
got just 7 (1503).  I don't recall seeing where or how that decision was 
made; is there a link someone can provide to the relevant discussion in
