You mean, much like the Fedora and Red Hat trademark policies, which say
almost the exact same things?

You can't modify Fedora under F/OSS principles and still call it Fedora,
just like you can't modify Firefox under F/OSS principles and still call
it Firefox. Both of us do this to protect the good name of the project.
We'd be in an extremely glass house-y situation if we tried to 'call
out' Mozilla over this. It'd be ridiculous.
