Congrats, Mike and Brad! This is a huge leap forward.
By the way, has anyone thought of ensuring the numbering scheme is "machine parsable"? As in, there's only one straight way to parse those numbers, and make sense of them. This could make it easy for tools to generate and read reports that use OWASP numbers.
