And they can use the compatibility matrix on http://www.open-ils.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=versioning to see what other software they need. (Granted that matrix is missing 2.3 at the moment.)

Yes. For us and our users version numbers are useful shortcuts, e.g., for discussing feature availability and for upgrade schedule.
