... which shows why I've got problems with the term "Custom Debian" because
it is missleading people who do not see it as successor of the formerly
called "Debian Internal Projects".

This is right but under the terms we defined in Oslo also your first
example belongs to this group.  The problem is that there was no
official announcement where "Custom Debian" was *defined*.  Because
I'm no native speaker and was not involved in finding the name I
did not want to do such an announcement myself.
