That would work as long as related applications (moc, linguist stuff,
etc) remain either **fully** backwards compatible within the major
version *or* they are also marked with the minor. For example instead
of shipping moc6 one could ship moc6.<API/ABI stable LTS>, like let's
say moc60, moc66 or alike.
