I see no reason to believe that the DFSG applies to things like the
name of a program, like it does not covers patents.
There has never been a list of "explicitly allowed" requirements.
This is just another way some people are trying to extend its meaning
to cover areas it was never supposed to regulate.

And anyway, even if this were true I can't see why this would not be
allowed by DFSG #4.
