What can be Mozilla ? "for Debian" or "Debian" ?

I think they want us to negotiate all package names individually. In addition, they will be god for us (e.g. we add a patch, they have to agree). I think if we try this procedure and they usually do not complain, we can probably do it. I mean, just negotiate on the name und keep it running as usual, until they really claim that we need to remove a patch or something. if that happens, we can rethink our position and maybe drop the trademark symbols.

Anyway, I guess we should try find a unique solution for all mozilla apps.
