LaTeX derivatives not called LaTeX:

Ensure that it contains no file with a name the same as that of
a file in the standard distribution but with different contents.
(If this is not possible then you must:
\begin{itemize}
\item
ensure that files from the non-\LaTeX{} system cannot be
accidentally accessed whilst using a standard \LaTeX{};
\item ensure that each file from the non-\LaTeX{} system clearly
identifies itself as a non-\LaTeX{} file on the terminal and in
the log file.)
\end{itemize}

I agree that this text sholud be a part of the license itself (or be
better referenced), but this language definitely is there.
