Probably, yes :)

This seems reasonable.

Yes but it only makes sense if you can guarantee regular releases.
2014.1 and then 2016.1 would be somewhat strange. 
Also, a change in Versioning model should be well motivated :)

I think semantic versioning is still the way to go:

And hence, 4.5.0 (commonly 4.5) would be the right choiceâ„¢ ;)
So we should release a 4.5.0-rc.1 within the next time and if nobody complains (who should?)
we can go 4.5.0 :D

Right then, on to 4.6.0-alpha
