    I hereby propose that we forever drop the early, mid, late prefixes for Mac Pros until Apple releases two in one year again.

    Are we seriously calling the current Mac Pro the "Late 2013" model?

    At this rate, we'll be able to name them by decades soon.

    I agree with all of your points, but I feel we already do that.

    For the "late 2010" I generally see "5,1" or "2010".
    For the "late 2013" I generally see "6,1", "nMP", or "2013"

    "nMP" might become unclear if Apple ever releases a new MP.

    Most people call it 2013 anyway. The Late/Mid/Early prefixes are in case there's going to be a revision the same year. You might never know when it could happen.

    Nah, then we'll have the nnMP. And after that, the nnnMP. Then maybe the n4MP, n5MP, etc. ;)

    They should all be called late because they always are late... if you know what I mean.

    Apple identifies all their Mac Products on Apple Support/Specs using early, mid or late for a specific year. The six million dollar question is what will identify next Mac Pro if there is one.
