I agree.

This could be because the guidelines are unnecessarily too strict or
because the trademark requires too strict guidelines
Can you elaborate? I don't think we want unnecessarily strict
guidelines. It may very well be that our trademark guidelines need to be

If it's just because our guidelines are too strict, then I'm sure we can
fix this by revisiting the guidelines. But if it's because the trademark
law requires such strict guidelines, then there's not a lot we can do.

Btw, I suddenly wonder: if what is trademarked is the "foot + GNOME
text" image, then is usage of only the foot covered by the trademark?
Probably not. But your premise doesn't hold true. writes:

The GNOME trademarks are:
    The word GNOME™
    The GNOME foot logo

Except that the GNOME foot logo that might be trademarked might be the
logo that includes the text. I don't remember what we did when we
trademarked it :-)
