But again, for me it is still unclear if we need to patch the orig.tar.gz in advance. I would think so; we currently remove the icons anyway, so IMHO removing all other trademarks would be necessary too, right?

Removing trademarks is not the reason why you remove the icons in the
orig.tar.gz. The reason is that the icons are not free.

Is there really a big difference? Is there a separate copyright license for the icons other than the trademark document that this whole discussion is about? I remove the icons in order to distribute it in main. Same would be true for the trademark stuff. So, if we find out that we have to change the trademarks in order to put it into main, why is it enough to remove the trademarks during build, while it is needed to remove the icons in advance?

I just don't see the line.
