Since Camera Raw is a plugin and not a separate product, it uses a different icon with slightly different treatment (i.e. no '2017'). Extension Manager is treated similarly.
Yes, i know. But this plugin is a must if you're using Photoshop. So at least there should be a year tag..

I appreciate your desire for order and harmony but I'm not quite sure what the main point is in this discussion.
The version numbering for Camera Raw seems to work fine as it is. Using the current version numbering system, it's easy to work out which version of Camera Raw you need to support which camera model.
How would "Camera Raw CC 2017.1" improve the current nomenclature?
Plus Adobe's use of the year tag is inconsistent. The latest version of Lightroom is currently CC 2015.8 even though it was released in Dec 2016.
