That's a huge leap, and I seriously doubt it was intended by the
drafters of DFSG4. I would argue very strongly against that
interpretation. A name is just that, a name: some text moniker that
identifies a project. "GCC", "grub", "Linux", and "Apache" are all
names. A logo is not a name.
How is Τεχ, a name, any different from the swirl?
Both serve the same purpose, to uniquely identify; both do so in the
same manner. What is the difference between a name and a logo? m-w.com
gives a name as "a word or phrase that constitutes the distinctive
designation of a person or thing."
Is the only real difference if you can find the identifier in the
Unicode table? If so, that'd make --- IMO --- a very silly distinction.
Especially since I can find ⌚, ⌛, ☝, ♕, etc. there. Or even 怂, which
looks like it'd make a neat logo.
