I don't see a conflict there.  A copyright notice is not a claim of
endorsement or official status - it's particularly clear that this is
not the case if only "portions" are copyrighted by some standards body.

I think it's self-evident that people are not allowed to remove
copyright statements.  That's _always_ true unless you are specifically
authorised to do so. But perhaps this should be spelled out explicitly?
