So IIUC the donated docs that will eventually be published at include mentions of trademarks that we do not

In my opinion mentioning such trademarks in documentation is perfectly
ok as long as we acknowledge them, I don't see how that could cause
harm to their owner.

So I suppose if those docs mention Flex and Foo, you just need to add
a note that Apache Flex is our trademark, and Foo is a trademark of
<whoever owns it>.

Where there might be a problem is for other modules that were donated
to Flex in the meantime, without providing an explicit trademark
donation - their name might need to be changed in Flex, if we don't
own the corresponding trademarks. But that's not directly related to
this issue IIUC.
