You are right.  Its not murky at all.  There are lots of packages under
various different licences.  The distribution of the entire collection
has to comply with all those licenses.  They have told you that a small
number of packages within that collection have trademark restrictions
which you must comply with, or purge those packages before
re-distribution.   No further restrictions are being applied to GPL
packages.

This has been had out before - I think it was RH8 (or just possibly 7.3)
which had this EULA first.  There are plenty of archives around with
earlier flame wars^W^Wdiscussions.
