Updates should be seamless and everyone should have latest.
There are solid reasons for using traditional schemes like (major).(minor).(patch), and when a user sees that the major version number has changed, they know that something really significant has changed in the application architecture, and that if they upgrade to that version there's a reasonable chance that some incompatibilities will ensue.

No, not everyone will have that interpretation, but that doesn't mean it's sensible to remove useful information for the people that do. With the new scheme, the version has no meaning for any user. The whole thing is a pointless backward step.
