Well, I  think that the force of  PDK is that is  a rather general and
flexible  tool,   which  can   be    used  both   to generate    fully
Debian-contained CDDs, which are released when Debian is released, and
"independent" derivatives too,  where   external means that   1) there
might be additional packages which are  not included in Debian 2) they
have a different release schedule than Debian. So it's a matter of how
you use it..

Actually there are plans to add support  for it (I suggested it myself
[0]:), and it would be relatively easy.
