Because 'developer version' today is not the same 'developer version' in 
1 year.

The whole point is so that when someone references 'butterfly' and, some 
amount of time later, someone is reading something that references 
'butterfly' *it is still the same butterfly*. Confusion is eased. This 
is especially true since we have a large and constant influx of new 
developers who are already facing an overload of information.
