Right. With generic logos package we can solve one of the requirements for derivatives which is to distinguish themselves as a different brand and effort from Fedora so that they can add packages outside the distribution for whatever reasons and redistribute it to other folks.

One of the other mutually beneficial requirements is to help a derivative declare themselves as based on Fedora. Not Fedora. Just based on it. This would come under fair use regardless of the rights and restrictions on the trademark guidelines but we can benefit from making it easier for derivatives to do this.

Maybe another logos package and exposing that as a easy to use functionality in live cd tools, pungi, revisor, wevisor etc to replace fedora-logos with either generic logos or derivative logos package or custom feed the images dynamically without even building a rpm package.
