Using the x9xx name just for Dual GPUs seems kind of a waste no? Plus in the long run, it's MUCH more logical now.

X2 = 2 existing GPU's with the same clocks slapped on one card
plus leaves room for a HD 6890 to take on a GTX 475 or a HD 6980 vs. GTX 485 the numbering system makes sense to me and leaves room for future refreshes.
or maybe the Nvida CEo and the AMD CEo get drunk together and just name their cards after their receipt totals, who knows?
