It kind of makes sense if you're using only things whose behaviour cannot
reasonably change. It is reasonable to expect that if Data.List, say, were
removed from base, that would be accompanied by a change of the first
component of the version number.
There's no guarantee, since PVP only demands the major version (the first
two components) to be changed, but common sense says revolutionary changes
should show up in the first component.
