Then how about "not deriving away from Debian" instead - is that a 
common and familiar concept/expression in english?

I think that changes focus:

Discussing whether the piece you hold in your hand and am interested in 
is contaminated or not is different from discussing how a lot of pieces 
(only a fraction of which you as a user have a direct interest in) are 
all uncontaminated.

To me that sounds less relevant for me - as a potential user of a blend: 
It talks about how all blends are in Debian, rather than (as the 
original text) each individual blend - e.g. the one specific blend I am 
interested in.
