If this was intended to discourage such questions here, I think it is
not a fair objection.

An isosceles triangle is a triangle, but Tails is not Debian.

Your comparison fails because Tails is a distribution of its own not
part of Debian in any way, just as Ubuntu or many or the other
derivatives of Debian.

"just as Ubuntu or many *of* the other derivatives of Debian."

Fair enough. Tails is a debian derivative that is not a Debian Pure
Blend[1]; ie, it is not merely "a subset of Debian that is configured
to support a particular target group out-of-the-box".

At first, I thought that it might be a Pure Blend. FWiW, This page
convinced me you are correct:

Thank you for elaborating.
