We are talking about section as in admin, devel, libs, doc, ...,

Not section like main, contrib, non-free.

A section like admin would sort all the live-cd packages under one
heading in dselect or aptitude. Thats what I would prefer.

If you mean section like main then I would suggest main/live-cd just
like main/debian-installer. I don't think that splitting the live-cd
debs from normal main is needed though. They should coexists or you
get the effect you have now when upgrading knoppix.
