The only thing I disagree on is the name. We have a floating format
alias 'development' (which we can remove if its not useful). Also we
chose -not- to use release markers for development formats because we're
not actually releasing them in that release. I'm open to us changing
that policy, but if we do please update the documentation and rationale
in development-formats.txt. That said, why do you want to change the
naming standard for dev formats.

+1 on the first two format names.
