The idea is to kill bad names early (fail fast) before expensive legal
advice is sort

AIUI "trademark search" is an overloaded technical legal term. In some
cases, the board may need to actually pay for an actual "trademark
search". This would get confusing for everyone.

But yes, I agree that using "kill search" is probably a bad idea.
What podlings needs to do is essentially "fact finding" (not
interpretation). Perhaps someone could come up with something along
this line of thinking...

(Or someone could just suggest a cool name)
