"600th issue" milestones

I don't point this out because of my reputation as a slight DC fanboy, I point it out because it was only a few weeks ago that I called out Marvel for their convenient numbering of so many #600 issues lately. THIS LINK takes you to a Newsarama interview with DC chief Dan Didio, where you will find this tidbit:

NRAMA: We’re out of questions for this time, but there was an interesting fact was pointed out in the thread, and we have to admit that we haven’t double-checked the math, so we’re not sure if this is correct or not, but according to one reader, issue #45 of the current Wonder Woman series will be the 600th issue of Wonder Woman published by DC. Anything special planned for it?

DD: Well, since it’s not the actual number of the book, and we have no plans to re-number books just for an “event,” so no, nothing at this particular time, but I do hope that the Wonder Woman story going on right now has the feeling of being worthy of such an auspicious achievement.
