Please don't call this feature "Bikesheds" and don't hardcode this naming
in the suggested API. It was funny during one Debconf talk... but it won't
be funny in the long term.

I don't want to suggest bikeshedding on the name but stick to something
simple like "XXX Package (Repository|Archive)" with a XXX that makes sense
to you (Special, Developer, Custom, ...).

I'm with you.

It's not only confusing because the word already has two meanings, but it also doesn't say anything about the feature at all, while being hard to remove the negative connotation the word carries from the bikeshedding concept.

Best regards.
