I doubt it. AFAIK the policy has always been that only CDs with an md5sum
matching those on cdimage.debian.org may be called "official".

If you're going to make a 4th CD anyway, you could possibly put the updated

and one "special LinuxLand edition with enhanced installer" CD ;-)

IIRC you can call anything "Debian" if it's >50% Debian stuff or something.
