I don't see the awkwardness either.

I see it adding simplicity which is what we need vs. another name we 
have to explain to people less involved in the development/release 
process: what it is, if they should use it, etc.

Here is a draft diagram I have explaining what the trees and repos look 
like.  I don't think we need an additional label or name as the picture 
illustrates or see what we gain.
