Why would we want it to communicate "Distinguish this from GNOME"?  I

Do the Ubuntu GNOME maintainers ship all the upstream GNOME pieces or
are some of them replaced with distribution specific ones? E.g. are
they shipping GNOME Online Accounts or Ubuntu Online Accounts?

I can't see any possible reason for wanting to it communicate "This is
Ubuntu's GNOME".  What good does that do us or our cause?  None that
I can see.

If they are replacing upstream pieces with distribution ones, we may
not want that new set to be seen as GNOME because users might be led
into believing some issues they encounter come from our software when
that might not be the case.
