Semantic versioning is about a consistent concept of version handling.
And that concept of consistency should be in a forms of the version - be it
text string or numberic.
That you see them as two somewhat independent concepts isn't something I
support or thing makes sense at all.
Our users code checks version information using the integer representation
and it should be in semantic form as such - i.e. the pure numeric parts of
the semantic version.
This is the major point I've been trying to get across. Semantic versioning
isn't about just one identifier in text format - it is about how you handle
versioning in general. And consistency is its purpose.
