Also, at least here in the United States, the fact that "Drupal" is a 
registered trademark means that no one is allowed to use the word in a 
way that could lead to a likelihood of consumer confusion as to source 
or sponsorship, even in the absence of any formal trademark usage policy 
from either Dries or the Drupal Association.
