Agree.  But you get the same behaviour either way:

stable:       2.0.6-1              2.0.6-1
snapshot:     2.0.6+gitwhatever-1  2.0.7~gitwhatever-1
intermediate: 2.0.6-2              2.0.6-2
next stable:  2.0.7-1              2.0.7-1

In both cases "next stable" is newer than the snapshot, while "intermediate" 
will not be installed because the version is older than snapshot.

It's a very minor point, admittedly.
