I fully agree with above.

If you find it unnecessary to mention that "detail", then perhaps 
consider instead not promote that concept at all, and instead promote 
the weaker concept "Debian Blends" which includes "sort-of almost 
Debian" systems as well.  I would not recommend that, however.

That sounds like a nice improvement to me.
