I had a quick look and agree that Mutations would be a better name. Not only for the reasons you suggest, but also because Prototypes doesn't, to me anyway, imply the multitude of contributed alternatives that the project seems to be encouraging. Prototypes sounds too well thought out and goal oriented... they are usually the product of one team working towards one outcome. It makes it sound like you would be downloading something that was in some way sanctioned by the team, just not ready yet. The word mutations captures the unexpected/unanticipated community contributions a bit better.

Anyway... the idea of having an obvious home for the new and different variants is cool. :)
