[Mono-list] ".NET 3.0" misnomer

You probably know about WinFX being renamed to .NET 3.0. .NET 3.0 is being
called an "additive" update, which means no breaking changes, just
additional features. 
Now the problem is this: if nearly all of .NET 2.0 is portable, and none of
.NET 3.0 is portable, and .NET 3.5 will have crucial changes like LinQ,
there's no guarantee that .NET 3.5 onward won't depend on .NET 3.0,
therefore making .NET unportable. 
It's a little late now, but I think we need to try to persuade them to
reverse this short-sighted decision. Knowing how often they change product
names, we still have a chance.
