Emdebian is a more of a Debian-derived distribution (like
Ubuntu/Debian-Edu), Debian Pure Blends (and the old CDDs) are simply a
group of people working within Debian to make Debian itself suitable
for a specific audience.

I do think the new name is much better than the old one, but I agree
that it still isn't perfect.

I think "raw consensus" is roughly equal to "rough consensus".
