If we don't use any trademarked images, logos, or phrases, what
exactly are we talking about here?

I'd hope there are more things at issue here than the name of the
script that eventually calls another script that eventually calls the
binary. [If that's all that we're discussing, I'd suggest just asking
a low priority debconf question about installing a
/usr/bin/mozilla-firefox symlink that links to the package in
question, and rename the binary package.]

The game of science is, in principle, without end. He who decides one
day that scientific statements do not call for any further test, and
that they can be regarded as finally verified, retires from the game.
