Suppose that I have created a derivative program and have not asked for
written permission.  Then I must use your terms to endorse and promote
my program, although under clause 5 they cannot appear in its name.

It sounds like the permission I would want is the permission *not*
to use these terms.

Which is not a word either, unless you mean "paranoiac".

/me casts a spell of banishing, returning you to Underbridge.
