To me, version numbers are about delivery to the user. If APIs change, or
Emacs start to look and feel different, it should be a major version bump. If
it instead integrates something that's not really a user-facing feature, that
can go in on a minor bump. In general, the 25 "series" should feel like a
consistent march of refinement.

Concurrency would very much justify 26.x, but I don't think dynamic loading
should. That's much more of a developer-oriented feature. It doesn't change
the overall feel, and while it adds APIs, it doesn't change them. (If I'm
wrong on that last point, then yes, 26 it is).
