Is/was DeMuDi a derivative work like debian-multimedia? If so I agree
it is easiest to avoid it.
If DeMuDi is/was a Debian-internal initiative similar to debian-edu, or
those active in it are/was interested in passing it on to Debian, then I
still find it interesting to consider using that name as I believe it is
well known also outside Debian.
