This use case is more than reasonable, I would not mind to support it.
In fact, archzoom supports it in different ways, using a transposed view
and when string like bazaar--*--1.5 is specified in url.

I think we are on the same page.

Maybe. Like many here I go forth and back about a/c--b--v namespace.
I still think it is useful in many cases and actually simplifies the
work flow. Once you drop the support for it, you can't easily create
systems that make use of it.

Consistency probably. Currently "abrowse" is a superset of "categories",
"branches", "versions", "revisions". The same may be valid for "browse".
