It wont be, technically it is just Lyns version of Blade master considering they cant pick that as a class option. Different skills? yes. Treated as it's own class? kind of sort of but not really.
IMO, Lyn Swordmasters (See what I did there?) should be treated like a new class. They play completly different from Blademasters (Now you see it!). In fact, they remind more of a Destroyer then a BM. Sure, they have a few similar skills (Blade Draw Stance is pretty much the same) but most of the other skills are different from BMs.
Especially the most used skills like the Whirlwhind, RB (Fire/Thunder wave) and Force Choke are completly different from the BM.
I played BM to around lvl 25 and Lyn SM to max lvl and, at least for me, they never felt similar execpt for the Sword Draw stance and the fact that both use swords.
