...which _is_ the scope of CDDs.

CDD is an ambiguitive abbreviation, but the project behind the term has
explicitly declared a goal of "all within Debian". So interpreting CDD
as "Custom [repackaging or extensions of the] Debian Distribution" is
wrong. The correct interpretation is "Custom [subset of the] Debian
Distribution".


Please note, that I welcome repackaging and extending Debian. Just
please do not confuse things by misusing a term already defined for
something else: It is then a _derived_ distribution, not a CDD.


Your main point still stands: PDK might be relevant as a tool both for
CDDs and for derived distributions.
