I think for those who want to use RFNs that desire is perfectly valid.Therefore I think rather than asking for removal, the recommendation could either be to use (a) a codename for the development of the family that is not reserved (and that Debian will use) or (b) drop the RFN and use trademark assertions/registrations instead.

I wonder if we should also add a sentence suggesting to ask upstream
to remove the RFN. It could also provide upstreams with the less
desired alternative of softening the RFN it to allow building from
unmodified source and encourage upstream to provide a deterministic
automated build process.
