I don't think this is necessary, and it might be too similar to Linux
to avoid confusing people---the second number in a Linux version
number is practically a major version number; we don't want to give
the impression that's true for Emacs.

We could also call the development snapshots 21.4.50, 21.4.51, etc.
Even better would be 21.4.50.yyyymmdd, IMO (also, yyyymmdd makes it
abundantly clear it's a snapshot, even to people who don't understand
the Linux numbering scheme.)
