I have no idea what you're talking about.

The problems caused by the current "mess" (21.4 released to mean
something else, 22.1 chosen for next release) would have happened
regardless of what scheme was chosen (including all of your wacky
ones), because what occured is that an extra real release was added in
between the last real release and the designated next real release. 
No amount of futzing around with pre-release names would have changed

The questions, as I understand it, are merely (1) how to call real
releases, and (2) how to call pre-releases.

For the next release at least, it's been decided that (1) will be
"22.1"; what I understand Jérôme to have meant is that (2) in this
case should be "22.0.x", where x = 1, 2, 3, ...
