How does this relate to the new draft trademark policy?

I can't tell from the draft policy, but I believe that OSM at least is
a protected mark, not sure about osm.

But I do think Simone Poole asked the community to stop naming things
with osm trademarks in them or variations on openstreetmap phrase.
