The letter (K) refers to the Debian boot-floppies revision (the installer)
The number (4) refers to the Debian-CD system, what packages, baseGNU etc.
If Debian GNU/Hurd becomes unstable then the it is $#@! to produce a
workable CD set. So the K4 set is the fourth set produced using the K
installer. Debian GNU was stable so we have a stable CD set.

Yes. The images are based on the Debian archive. When L4 gets into the
archive then the CDs will be L4 based.
