Why is Superman Beyond a #0?

Why is Superman Beyond labeled as #0 instead of as a One-Shot? As far as I can tell, it's a self-contained story and there are no plans to continue it as a series.

I thought there were plans to continue it as a series. 
In fact, I sort of assumed it was one of DC's new 52.

@labarith: I looked. I can't find it in the list of upcoming titles up through November. I guess maybe they plan on continuing it after that?

It probably is because they did not want to readers to assume it was the start of a series. There was talk of giving the Justice League Unlimited of the future there own series so maybe this would keep them in the readers minds.

I think it will be planned for next year as they plan to bring back Batman Beyond. I guess making a #0 issue is to see what the reaction would be.
