I meant 'strict' here in a purely relative sense compared to the current 
practice, not in absolute terms.  For this you would be right, i have 
next to no knowledge of trademark policies elsewhere and before getting 
into comparative analysis here we would also have to think about what 
kind of organization the OSMF can actually be compared to in this 

So i stick to looking at what we have now and what this policy would 
change.  I am sorry if this was not apparent from what i wrote.

And in case this is not clear: I have not yet formed an opinion on the 
matter, i am still in the process of analyzing what effects a change in 
policy (from essentially no rules to these - however strict or lenient 
you might consider them) will have.
