I think that this is an excellent suggestion. Many conservative system administrators won't use a dot-o release anyway as they view it as "unstable" (regardless of what the developers say).
Renumbering might also help to reduce confusion amongst regular users. By renumbering 1.3.9 to 1.4.0, you could differentiate it from the 1.3 series. This would leave you with:
1.3: Stable, Deprecated
1.4.0: Release Candidate
Still not ideal, but easier to wrap your head around than the current scheme.
