Why not just release a standalone Mezzo?

They pretty much are. It's Knoppix with Mezzo and some custom stuff on top.

I think what the OP meant (and if not, it's what I wonder) is why can't this be released as just a DE as opposed to an entire distro? I'd personally love to try this out on top of my existing distro. I mean, it's just fvwm with a mozilla backbone and some other stuff, there's no need to brand it as a distro. Or am i wrong?
