Not bad at all, I think.
Maybe "blanc de coupe" would be a little bit better.

But I'd rather follow, for example:
http://www.alain.les-hurtig.org/varia/empagement.html who uses "petit
fond" et "grand fond". It has the advantage to use a professional
terminology, which is easier to fall back to when discovering the
context system. No?
