You shouldn't look at the name but rather at the description that me and
others have given here earlier.

I guess that depends mostly on what the packagers will feel like doing,
ultimately in a community distro nobody can be force anyone to do
anything, if too few people are doing security fix backports but most are
doing version backports then we will have this 'light' rolling distro (or
whatever you want to call it), if not then we will have the old mdv
