That is an interesting point. If such works are there for /functional
/purposes *not* related to perception of the brand - for example if they
are components of documentation or icons in the user interface, then
trademark is misapplied to them. It seems appropriate that we could have
a policy on such misapplication. But it should make careful note of the
acceptable use of trademarks for brand perception.
