Right. It's clear that you intend the name to be both clear and
clearly a legitimate use of the mark. But not everyone understands
the name the way you have meant it.

If the name is confusing people about your intentions, it would seem
to be in everyone's best interests -- including the DCC's -- to find a
name that conveys the group's goals more precisely.
