My feeling is that a tree of three or more levels deep adds complexity to new Learners. It goes against the 'low floor, no ceiling' philosophy by requiring that Learners learn a new counting system, on top of integer increments.

Yes.  Better than the current situation though.

Ideally, instead of presenting a version number to a learner, a graph describing the history of the activity source and dependencies could be displayed.

Alternatively, separate the Learner visible numbering from the software release numbering, and leave the visible numbering within the scope of a deployment.  Then one deployment's Browse-190 may be different to another deployment's Browse-190.
