Personally, I think it's because it's a null clause everywhere.  Using
the names of legal persons to promote derived works requires permission.

Unlike some "supertrademark" (some CC licences) and anti-agency
(APSL? CDDL?) clauses, the modBSD one allows other uses of the
names and other permissions to exist.
