The "nonstandard" and "noncompliant" names seem a bit pejorative.

However, fedora-release-custom and fedora-release-diy (do-it- 
yourself) and fedora-release-pyop (pick-your-own-packageset) and  
fedora-release-byob (bring-your-own-blueprint)  all have similar  
meanings to this US-English speaker, and all seem like reasonable  
choices, although the last three might require a parenthetical  
explanation for some folk.

Yes, Myrtle Green would make a nice color for the bike shed.
