Perhaps I'm the one missing something. To me, the intro section [1] of
the guidelines page makes it sound like the page is to help
*derivatives* do the right thing by *debian". In my mind this change of
handling of branding is something *debian* is doing for *derivatives*.
As such, the guidelines page feels like the wrong place for it.
