It is quite simple and not very dramatic IMO:

- [some new name] (sometimes called "Phoenix" as working name) which was 
for a long time meant to be "v5" will have a name of its own (for now: 
[some new name]).
- [some new name] will be the successor of TYPO3 but because a lot of 
concepts and features are different it will not be a matter of a simple 
Upgrade Wizard; it's more something to build a relaunch of a web site 
with (once [some new name] is a usable CMS)
- v4 will be called TYPO3 and can use major version numbers again
- TYPO3 v5.x will be skipped because there are a lot of references to it 
in various publications of the past years. If we would use it for TYPO3 
and not for [some new name] there would be too much confusion.

- [some new name] gets it's own name and will in the future take over as CMS
- after TYPO3 4.7 (or 4.8) there can be a TYPO3 version 6.0 if we have 
reason to call it a major version
- TYPO3 will still be developed after the release of [some new name], 
but will slowly be phased out in favour of [some new name], depending on 
the demand of the users

Kind regards / met vriendelijke groet,
