Does not matter if short term solution or not.  Others may start releasing
Haiku distros too.  Already have Senryu, Basho, Pingwinek Haiku.  Others
will come like  
StilNovo, maybe Haiku Max ( under another name ), etc.

The closer Haiku gets to R1, the more Haiku based distros will appear.

The guidelines have to be enforced with all distros, short or long term,
otherwise they won't be fair for all and others will start making distros
with Haiku trademarks, logos, etc. which may confuse users thinking
it is Haiku's official release ( which should remain distinct from other
distros ).
