O$10: what is the rationale to skip O$9 ?

As far as I'm concerned, they can call it whatever they want.

The fact that they've skipped over 8.2 to go to 10 is what is problematic for me, as we were counting on that version...

    Well, when decision was made to move from O%6 to O%8 it was based on the idea of not having confusion with O7 (aka classic).
    As far as I know, there was no O9 classic, so why 10 is all of the sudden better then 9?
    
    Btw, I don't think there is such a thing as "lucky" number.  People do come up with all sorts of ideologically driven explanations but I am interested why rational people chose to follow the irrational "lucky number" philosophy.
    
    I am just curious, that is all.
