Understood. But, as I previously explained, that wasn't my reasons for
using those examples. I was highlighting what I believed to be acceptable
use, and trying to find a path of acceptability for our situation, similar
to those. I certainly was not trying to highlight mis-use to justify
further mis-use.

We've followed the second route... renaming the fluo-io organization on
GitHub to astralway, and are in the process of removing use of the Fluo
name everywhere except when referencing Apache Fluo explicitly.

I actually had expected to be asking explicit questions on trademarks@
soon, but given the route we've taken, I actually don't think we have any
outstanding trademark questions/requests to follow up with. Our next RC
brought to the IPMC shouldn't have any remaining trademark concerns.
