I'm not sure what the general rules are with this, but I've noticed that <port>-devel allows people who are so inclined to get closer to the bleeding edge, presumably forewarned that what they are running is of a markedly different status. Let people work with the -devel branch and decide from there when the 2.1 branch is sufficiently stable to replace 2.0 in the standard port.
