Default Points Based visa System

Thanks for discussion on spouse work rules and visas in general.

I recently saw something on the ukvisas.gov.uk web page that there is a Points Based System Tier 1, General Migrant (INF 21):

"The Points Based System (PBS) is a new system for managing migration for those wishing to enter the UK for work or study."

This indicates it can be used for "work or study" and I can demonstrate over 75 points -- but I have no clue if this type of migration visa would be of any use to my specific situation.

Does "migration" mean that someone is attempting to gain a UK citizenship or is it just another type of work visa recently offered?
