We keep this numbering for backward compatibility with old .geo files. 
To get the new (more "natural") numbering, just add

Geometry.OldNewReg=0;

at the beginning of your model or in your option file.

Still, usually it's better to use the numbers returned by the commands 
themselves. See e.g. tutorial/t2.geo or tutorial/t3.geo.
