Ye-es, these are strange times... ;-)

Manty said so in his posting on debian-cd from October 10 ("Basic
Sarge CDs available for testing"):

and apparently our venerable old and new release manager also regards
them as such (same thread):

IMHO, they are official because they are made by DDs and hosted on a
debian.org server - they're "official" in the same way that the
testing distribution is.
