Might it be better to improve the existing Apache trademark policy page?

http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/

This way all projects can benefit, e.g., Pig, Hive, Zookeeper, etc.

We might, e.g., propose more examples of acceptable and not-acceptable
uses of Apache marks there, etc.  We can work with trademarks@ to build
a library of boilerplate letters to be sent to folks whose use Apache
marks in objectionable ways.
