Yes, of course, we both mean the same. The distinction between media
inclusions has it's consequence in ISO contents as well. Depending on
the outcome of the discussion I pointed to we may have
 - ISOs with parts of core only
 - ISOs with parts of core + parts of non-free
 - ISOs with parts of all three branches

So both (media inclusion and ISO contents) are related and will
possibly have their influence on the naming to make it easy for the
user to distinguish one from the other.
