Well, maybe you were, but if I did not follow you then it stands to reason
that at least one of us must not agree about the clarity. :)

I think there is a need to make clear and evident that the "full" version
is not US-exportable.  Perhaps "Official Debian 2.2 CD (Full version, not
US-exportable)" and "Official Debian 2.2 CD (US-exportable)" would work.
Here are the requirements as I see them:

1. US vendors need to know to press the full version for domestic sales;
2. Non-US vendors need to know to press the full version for all sales;
3. US vendors need to know not to export the full version.

Any labels which meet all three of these requirements would be acceptable.
