It is not Debian-specific at all.  However, it will be primarily written
with debian in mind, and will strive to produce a quality product in honour

It certainly won't be the first time something has been named in this way
(esd and eterm come to mind).

If you still object to the current name, please feel free to suggest
another. :)
