I would be interested to see a comparison of the Mozilla trademark
licenses with those for TeX: TeX requires passing a gruelling test
suite and guarantees functional equivalency; Mozilla requires it be an
unmodified copy of their code. So TeX is using trademarks to provide
brand-equivalence and consumer protection, their proper use. Mozilla
is using trademarks to enforce that which is properly the domain of
copyright. There's a case we don't often see.
