There's a distinction, but they're still both independent releases which doujin/indie would/did cover perfectly well. Whether one can afford to print more than another is rather insignificant. The added category only serves to add confusion, should circles/labels like HARDCORE TANO*C (who sell their more recent stuff through Amazon) and IOSYS (who are able to distribute their stuff through their own online store) now be considered independent?
