I like this interpretation of the term flavor and it would be easily applicable
for Debian-Med to flavors like:

        - Medical practice
        - Medical research
        - Microbiology
        - Dental practice
        - Veterinary medicine
        - ...

ACK.  That's why other people invented terms like "Fedora".  It just
says nothing and so int can't cause false implications.  It has to be
defined precisely before it is a term to work with.
