Nobody reads, or people read but already have the existing 'plugin status' terms defined in their head. That's fair.
Folks see 'beta' or 'experimental' and avoid the plugins even though they work and have for years.
Need a new labelling system that doesn't have any pre-existing definitions regarding quality or, in general, does not imply such things.
"milestone N" numbers?
Rocky Balboa fighters? (Apollo, Clubber Lang, Drago, Gunn, Dixon) hehe
Not sure, but we must move away from the current naming scheme.
