If an airline is looking at planes in the market segment, Airbus offers the A223 first, but if an airline wants A320+A321s and some A319s as well, they are willing to do this.
Right, but any/every plausible Airbus customer knows of the A319neo so if they want it they'll ask for it.
This means the distinction is meaningless, it is at best a bit of posturing by the marketing team.
In the end it is only important by the fact, that they do not compete with themselves by offering A223 and A319s. In the end the whole segment seems is not seeing too many sales anyway.
