So absolutely no justification for a change then. There is no need for all plugins to bump together. It is cosmetically nice to see all plugins with the same version, but it just isn't tenable long term.

For instance many OCL plugins remain at 3.x although those that have been affected by UML major changes have moved to 4.x and 5.x.

Inflicting a major change on clients is not a bit of a pain, it is a major pain, particularly for those clients that are stable and consequently have minimal maintenance teams. In some cases useful but unmaintained tools, such as UML2 Tools, are killed by the major version change.
