Debian Edu + Skolelinux: 2 names, 2 distros, 1 project


some days ago a IMO meaningful distinction and direction for the question in 
subject occured to me...

Currently we struggle with both the problem of having two names for one 
project and with the problem of finding the right balance between freenees 
and usefulness in our release. 

So I had the idea to actually release two distros:

a.) Debian Edu: 100% free, 100% Debian
b.) Skolelinux: Debian Edu plus some non-free stuff schools need 

Both distros would be produced by the same project and released at the same 

What do you think of the general idea? 

For myself I can say that I would love to work on both distros, as I know 
of/value the importance of having a fully free Debian distro for 
schools/educational bodies (so they can use it as a base for their distro) 
and I know that (probably other) schools want a solution that just works and 
dont care that much about (short term) freenees (ie want firmwares and 
nonfree flash installed by default).
