I find it more confusing that you would tag them by the name of the release. If I got to "Apple symbol" -> "About this mac", I get 
which has a version number, not a name. Maybe I am not enough of an enthusiast that I don't automatically connect that version number with a name.

Someone also pointed out a previous wiki search page for named versions with a similar issue that never got fixed, so maybe there is no interest or ability to fix them, but there might be interest in using version numbers.
