Well, the ones I mentioned later, perhaps.  I'm pretty sure that referring
to "Debian distributions" when they mean "Debian-based distributions" is
a trademark infringment -- it causes exactly the sort of confusion we don't
want and trends dangerously towards making Debian a generic term.  I
actually only described that one particular point as trademark
infringement, though my message was perhaps a bit confusing about that.
