Skipping a minor version number in favor of a major version number is often an arbitrary decision but no, no such reasons as afforded i.e. major releases of DEs or kernels were factors in such a decision process AFAIK. Of course one can always double check with the devels and maintainers and even Manoj (nick=Manoj) or Martin Michlmayr (nick=tbm) on #debian-devel on irc.freenode.net.
