Can we go one level up - should even Fedora be a name of a product? With 
Server/Workstation/Cloud and other as variants? Or can we treat Fedora as
a project covering all different products using different names?

You don't use M*soft Server but W*ows Server produced by that company...

KDE guys tried this rebranding a long time ago, it never worked very well due
to miscommunication in the very beginnings (KDE SC...). I was involved in
discussion at Akademy with many red faces screaming "noo, don't do that, noo"
but actually it makes sense. And even more sense to productised Fedora...
