For nominative use, you wouldn’t have to ask the first time.  I guess I
wasn’t clear, but I was talking about when you do have to ask.  For
example, I wanted to use Flex in the title of my blog.  The attribution I
was told to use is:

"Apache Flex, Flex and Apache are either registered trademarks or
trademarks of the Apache Software Foundation in the United States and/or
other countries, and are used with permission as of 2013.”

I would be surprised if this gives me permission to add other Apache
trademarks to my blog title.
