We haven't been following this practice closely in the 0.5.X releases.

Your definition of micro seems like it should be a stable branch of the major.minor. That would indeed make sense, if only we were doing it.

Given that we are already talking about 0.5.7, I would say we get close to 10 pretty easily.
