Not quite. It’s to publish the current version of OMEMO-siacs as the next version of the XEP (so that there is a version that people can point to and say “I implement XEP-0384 version 0.5”), and then to continue development of the standard from there in the manner of OMEMO-next - which may or may not mean breaking changes (this might be ODR, or might be something else, depending what the normal standards process yields).

There are assorted reasons for this proposal, which can probably be found by reading the long threads on the topic.
