We will add a clarification (which was in the original text) to the FAQ,
we are not requiring the trademark notice as part of the attribution text.

I don't quite see why you believe there is a conflict, nominative use,
for example in the description of a product or service, is a completely
different kettle of fish than use in a product/service name or on or as
part of a product.
Example the difference between saying "XY utilizes OpenStreetMap(TM)
data to do Z" and naming a product "OpenStreetMap XY".
