My initial assumption was "no", but it may be worth it just to allow us to change version numbering cleanly.  I don't have a strong preference either way.

Is it necessary to jump to 8.0.0?  I don't think it's that uncommon to
drop a 0-suffix from version numbers, so it would be as if the
patchlevel for previous stable releases were all 0 (7.0 < 7.1 < 7.2 <
7.2.1).
