While 4.7 has many changes, most of the changes are not visible to  
the user.  In many ways 4.7.0 will be a "developer release".  I'd  
prefer to reserve 5.0.0 for a "user release" that comes with more  
visual changes (eg. a new base theme and/or a new administration  
structure and/or CCK and/or workflows).

Plus, we've been calling this 4.7.0 for 8 months or so.  I'm worried  
that calling this 5.0.0 is going to confuse the heck out of people.   
It is going to render documentation/podcasts/videocasts outdated for  

My 2 cents,
