These are good questions. Although we would like to claim rights here,
leaving aside the legal issue of whether we _can_, I can see the
practical problems this represents. So, if you were to use the
trademark, and then subsequently permission to use was withdrawn, we
would not require you to change the package names and pathnames
(although we would request that you migrate away from them over time).
