It really ought to give the actual version numbers.

Also, when you install a new driver downloaded from, say, 
it really ought to sort out conformity with the kernel module.  I get
warnings (though it seems to work OK):

NVRM: API mismatch: the client has the version 295.33, but
 this kernel module has the version 295.20.  Please make sure that this
kernel module and all NVIDIA driver components
have the same version.

There ought to be a simple way of ensuring conformity.
