SR is not MMR

From the horse's mouth himself, one of the engineers/devs comments on a muselk tweet saying this directly.

So why is SR called SR if it doesn't actually mean skill rating?

After playing with my newbie friend in comp and lost/won a few games, I solo queue'd and got the easiest bronze-tier-esque players on red team, including on my own. It's clear now that diamond/plat for new players means "worse than bronze for silver portrait people" when you actually have experience in the game but initially were placed low.

So I'm assuming right that SR is just an arbitrary number now that we're locked into?
