True. Incrementing minor suggests production of a branch and that there may be a later bug-fix release from that branch which would increment micro. There are various implications suggested by the numbering strategy. These implications could result in more maintenance effort. They may also result in OS distribution maintainers not picking up the update since the increment to minor makes the release seem more major than it actually is.
