Good observations, especially in pointing out that d-i and live images
are separate from the reproducibility of source packages. And these are
not necessarily less important than the packages as well.

There is definitely an argument to be as complete as possible, but I
think the best thing from the perspective of the ecosystem map is to
be as consistent as possible across similar entities.

Therefore we should _probably_ stick to "% reproducible of packages",
as this is a number that most, if not all, distributions have.
