Are you suggesting there are trademark concerns with the name the
project has chosen?  If so, then yes, that's a valid reason for the
IPMC to challenge a project's vote - as a part of 'grooming' them to
think through these things...  in other words, the basis for us
challenging the vote is "trademark concern" rather than "I don't like
that name, it's too broad"...

... but I haven't seen a mark concern brought up...
