And that's why "don't use the name «apache»" or "don't misattribute me"
clauses in copyright licenses are stupid: because then I might create a
completely new work called «apache» or attributed to that author without
contravening the terms of these licenses. What stops me from doing these
things are other laws.
If I find the right wording, I'll add it to my FAQ proposal.
