Lots of people seem to have versions of Emacs 22 themselves, and don't
seem to know that it hasn't been officially released.  So people might
think there is little difference between the Emacs22 they have and the
finished one called 22.1.  So, it might be a good idea to give the new
version a higher version number.
I don't see a problem here (or misunderstand you): the current Emacs
22 versions are numbered 22.0.NN, so when 22.1 is released, they will
know it's newer.

Yes, but the implication is that it's only 0.5 of a version number
newer.  That doesn't indicate that the official v22.1 should be
significantly more bug tested than 22.0.NN ones were.

That's exactly what it indicates: the 22.0.NN versions are pretest
versions (the most recent NN is 92), and 22.1 will be available
when the release criteria are met.
