Yes, that makes sense. Sebastian, if it were made a project would that
clear up your doubts?
This isn't giving SoaS any special treatment -- any project that comes
close to the calibre of soas is obviously candidate to become
recognised as an official project.

I don't think it would be fair to take over the name of another
project. If another distro project comes along, I feel that it should
pick its own name. And is the name really that important? As an
example, the existing OLPC distros never really had a name.  I call
them e.g. "OLPC OS 8.2.0" but there doesn't seem to be any consensus,
and it hasn't been a hinderance in adoption. The users don't really
get to see the bits that are underneath, so they only refer to "Sugar"
