I don't think that's valid a valid interpretation.

Linux already has already been established as meaning the linux kernel
as well as distributions involving the linux kernel.  It's a generic
term in that context.

That doesn't mean it's a generic term in all contexts -- there's no
widely used Linux certification test suite, for example.

Is there anything else that makes you think that this will be a
concern for Debian?
