Moderately agreed.

Earlier in BIP 62 lifetime, I had commented on ambiguity that arose
from bumping tx version simply because we were bumping block version.
The ambiguity was corrected, but IMO remains symptomatic of potential
problems and confusion down the road.

Though I ACK'd the change, my general preference remains to disconnect
TX and block version.
