Its snazziness is a peachy bonus to keeping the user oriented, ;)

Yes: 03B is the case where the user clicked "Create your own data set". I
considered the use of the same title when the user edited an existing data
set, but I think that would be confusing and disorienting (even a minor edit
would make an entire title disappear). Perhaps a small "edited" distinction
beside those titles would be better suited.
