    Besides "unmodified versions", it would be nice to allow for

    1. Certification programs. Comply 100% with my API and pass my
       regression test, and then you get to use my certification mark.

    2. Revenue licensing. Pay the author something and get to use the mark.

I think that the plans I have in mind for trademarks and the GPL
are compatible with both of these approaches.
