Isn't Ether an altcoin?

In the video on the webpage (and supporting docs), it is clearly explained why Ethereum is not an altcoin. But won't ETHER be an altcoin given its function as a cryptocurrency?

    It's a currency just as anything that has fungible value between many different people is a currency, what does altcoin mean to you?

    To me, if ether is an altcoin then bitcoin is an altcoin ;) Might as well just call them coins.
