We've never created branches before for this purpose - why can't this
just be done in trunk like all previous releases?

The problem with a branch is that changes don't get picked up by the
build system or the front page of the site (IIUC).

For bootloaders, version numbers don't need committing - they have
always just been specified when building the binaries. e.g. "make
VERSION=3.0".
