    But did you ask him about giving blanket permission to others, as the
    GPL apparently does, to use that mark in any way they want?

None of the documentation licenses ORA is considering gives "blanket
permission".  They permit a particular range of things.

The GNU GPL does not give "blanket permission" either, but that's
beside the point, since ORA is not considering use of the GPL for this
book.  (We don't use the GPL for books, either.)
