Yes, symbol versioning requires the same level of discipline as the more 
constrained library version number bumping.  If we have decided that our 
developers are too incompetent to properly bump library versions for ABI 
changes then they are also too incompetent to handle symbol versioning.  
Furthermore, even with the massive library bumps, we have still stuck our 
collective heads in the sand and ignored all the port library version 
numbers.  In theory they should all be bumped for 5 -> 6 as well.
