IMHO Phoenix (or [somenew name]) is built on concept very different from the current. For these reasons TYPO3v4 (or next versions) should continue to be developed regardless of the version based on FLOW3 (it will be [some new name] 1.0).

I think it is wrong to leave a hole in the number of versions. For those unfamiliar with TYPO3 (or very little) is not clear why one version has been omitted. I personally would continue in the version number and the future major release of TYPO3 should be version 5 and not 6.
