My blog post may be worth a read through:

Since you are using decimal versions, it's important to remember they are a
single floating point and not a series of integers like versions everywhere
else. This unfortunately restricts you to 100 releases per major version in
the current scheme. But also beware changing schemes mid major version.
Decimal versions are still best for modules that need to support old Perls.
