It's not like the jump from 2.2 to 2.3 can't be as large as the jump to 3.0, it's just an unwritten rule that generally the farther apart the version numbers are, the bigger and more groundbreaking the update will be. Whether Gingerbread will be version 2.3, 3.0, or 5,785.243 really doesn't matter as long as it continues moving the platform in the right direction.
