Solaris 11 = SunOS 5.11. It's a minor release, not a major release.

Solaris 12 would have been SunOS 5.12; not a major release.

This looks like more of an optics decision than a technical decision -- and it means their (now much leaner) engineering staff now has to scramble to backport years of Solaris 12 development work into Solaris 11.
