Is there a valid reason to advertise squeeze-lts as "squeeze-lts" and not as

http://security.debian.org/dists/squeeze/updates/Release says "squeeze"
and not "squeeze-security" or something like that.

I would like that the squeeze-lts repository advertise itself as
"squeeze" codename because right now if someone has an APT pinning saying to
prefer "squeeze" packages, and if s/he add the squeeze-lts repository,
s/he won't get updates from squeeze-lts.

Maybe we can change the label to "Debian-LTS" to match what has been done for
security.debian.org with "Debian-Security" so that we have an easy way to
pin based on that if someone needs to pin squeeze-lts specifically.

I noticed that because someone added this to the wiki and it seems just
wrong to have to do this:
