Atleast in the docs project, we stopped using the word official and 
instead use formal for various reasons but even that can be avoided here.

1) Fedora respins
2) Fedora community (or custom) respins
3) Third party respins

I thought KDE was going to be retained as 1) until the spins 
infrastructure is proven out.

This we need to decide by a case by case basis. Some respins certainly 
can be linked to and even actively promoted.
