You could always change the marketing hype from 'This is for you' to
'What do you want ? We have it !', and state different lists of 'what
we have' for different groups. So you're promoting the _same_ distro,
not different brands/versions, for everyone. And at the end...
'we even have a predefined package set for you to install your servers
or your desktops, your office or gaming box, no funny package cherry picking...'.
