My opinion is that since we've decided on a unified lifecycle and
release process for now, we should reflect that in the names, so:

 Fedora 21 Cloud
 Fedora 21 Server
 Fedora 21 Workstation

but that we should also allow unversioned naming:

 Fedora Cloud
 Fedora Server
 Fedora Workstation

In the future, if we have separated release cycles, I think separate
numbering might make sense, with the "Built on the Fedora 21 platform"
wording or similar. Possibily date-based schemes for the products —
but I don't want to get the cart too far ahead of the horse on that.
