If a work uses trademarks illegally, we can't distribute that work.

Actually, I wasn't thinking of trademarks when I wrote that. The FSF's application of the GFDL typically includes A GNU Manual as a front cover text and Copies published by the FSF raise funds...

If I modify the manual at all, it's no longer a GNU Manual. Leaving it there may be a false designation of origin, in violation of Title 15, Sec. 1125.
