My take on this discussion so far  (and I am certainly NOT the definitive
judge on this):

* there is the listing on the consultants page itself:
http://www.openoffice.org/bizdev/consultants.html

concerning the actual content we are discussing. This does not have a (TM)
after Apache OpenOffice. I thought this was the original cause of objection.

And, we can see from the listings on the consultants page that we did not
enforce a (TM) after Apache OpenOffice on the consultants page.

* there are the actual websites of the consultants, like yours, and this
submitted one up for consideration.

It seems there is  more concern to enforce a (TM) symbol after Apache
OpenOffice for these third party websites.  However, this is not something
required by Apache.

See:

http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/faq/#attribution

The important factor is referencing OpenOffice as "Apache OpenOffice", and
not the use the of the (TM) after the name.

The website, http://www.jm-schmidt.de/inhalt.html, seems to have all bases
covered near as I can tell -- correct naming and use of (TM).
