Yes, that would be interesting, I have already seen that kind of "buttons"
on web pages. But we don't have anything official for that use.

Indeed, that's why it's great that Ubuntu is ready to make it more
obvious that they are Debian based.

I find this overkill and the kind of administrative work that we shouldn't
have to do. The DFSG authorizes any derived work, there's no reason for us
to create a difference "good/bad derived work".

Anytime Debian is used, it's good for us, however different the product
may be.

If we really have a problem with a particular derivative, we have other
ways of reacting (GR, press release, negociation, etc.).
