They've already stated what comes next, in the current naming scheme:
It appears they've either decided to use G5 for all post counts above 30K, or they haven't decided on what to use next, or they've increased the post count increment required for the next level. At any rate, it's interesting trivia about the history of processors Apple has used, but not much more. Whatever they elect to use is fine.
