Because it sure sounds like a package name to me. I understand now
that you aren't planning on ever wanting to use it as a package name,
but it also means that no one else will ever be able to use it as a
package name.

If you all are fine with it never being a package name in the future,
then that's fine by me. However, when I asked originally, it wasn't
clear to me that this had been considered.

That's fine too.

This is also fine.

I'm also going to assume that the correct maintainer address for the
psuedopackage is debian-live@lists.debian.org?

And the description should be something like:

General problems with systems running Debian Live

Once the name is settled, I'll create the pseudopackage.
