It's not quite as simple as that, unfortunately.  I'd be happier if it
was.  I feel there is an issue regarding if Debian should be a
commercial or a non-commercial entity, and how that affects its branches
in other countries and accordingly the Debian trademark policy.  It
happens that the DUS/Debian-UK/whatever people have pushed this issue to
the forefront by attempting to set up what appears to be a commercial
Debian branch in the UK but I don't feel this issue is really isolated
to them.
