"Better" yes - "required" before we can vote - no. My reasoning is
that WSO2 have already agreed they will use a different name if VP
Branding requires it. In fact they won't have any choice since the
proposal clearly indicates the Stratos trademark will be assigned to
the ASF.

That said I encourage someone on the project commit list to mail
trademarks@ to understand what would be acceptable.
