If I really had my way, I would use a logarithmic scale for the stops.

That's what the clicky stops are for (or used to be for, in case your chosen system no longer has them). If you take f/1.4 as the baseline aperture (for instance), then the f-stops happen at 1, 2, 3, ..., * (log 1.4).  

So I would say that Av shouldn't be more than 6.

The numerical f/stops, which you can read off the camera, are useful for some other things, e.g., manual flash exposures.
