It's my understanding that Debian Pure Blends is the rename of the CDD
project. Is that correct? If it's basically the same thing, I believe
renaming the list would suffice, unless there's an actual reason why to
leave -custom orphaned and unattended.

I see no difference on renaming the list and re-start using it as Pure
Blends. It makes not too much sense to just drop other list which
archive could be useful for other people too and pretend that the CDD
list was never there.
Please consider my opinions above.
