Which means to me we can us Adobe and Adobe Flash Flash trademarks but no other Adobe trademarks.

The Adobe and Adobe Flash trademarks yes, but not for ColdFusion, Dreamweaver, Illustrator,
Photoshop etc etc trademarks. In order to use those I believe that the words "No other license
to the Adobe trademarks are granted” would need to be removed and the other trademarks added
where needed. As I said I’m not 100% sure of the legal implications here, but IMO it needs
to be clarified before we can accept the donation.
