I don't think so, but it has been brought up before..

I don't want people to glance at a '4.9' directory along with 4.8,
4.7, etc.. until we actually have something called 4.9 release.
Relying on users to actually look inside the directory and see that we
only have RCs and not the final release is I think asking too much.

Plus, the whole reason for having the subdirectories (because we have
a collection of ISO images that we need to keep together), doesn't
really hold during the RC phase when we have at most 2 ISOs.

I don't think you need a new directory for 2 files.  It just gets in
the way.  We already have a pretty deep directory structure for a user
logging into the ftp site and just looking to download an ISO.
