True - for as long as they do not try to upload the result to the
Debian archive, which will carry only "unstable".

Plus set up their own non-Debian distribution mechanism for the
results, choose a name that does not coflict with the Debian

non-Debian archive signing key, et cetera. In short, split off and
create yet another loosely-based-on-Debian distribution.
