Unless we create the second logo set, I don't think we'll get very far with
pre-installation.  Most vendors will want to sweeten the user experience, and
possibly add branding.  Any of that will make it no longer Fedora, and the
vendor would be unable to make such claims under the trademark policy.
They'd have to remove all the Fedora/RH trademarked logos and such too.

To me that indicates a problem with the trademark policy, but that is
a windmill I will tilt at another day ;)
