It does not sound to me like you agree, Bård and Herman (and please
mention who you quote, Bård):
I believe Herman suggests making an ez-edu package that _depends_ on and
extends the more generic one. I agree with that approach.
It sounds like Bård _abandons_ the generic package and makes a parallel
educational one from scratch. I am aware that you probably want to
abandon the current ez 2.x package and instead work on a newer core, but
please do not aim for Skolelinux only: It will then be less relevant for
adoption in Debian.
Sorry if I did not interpret you correctly.
