The discussion in this thread mostly focuses around control of the
mark and why that may or more may not be important.
Based on that it appears to me that the first question we need to
answer for ourselves is if it is important to control the mark, and
how important it is?
And that is being discussed with arguments on either side of the topic.
The rest follows from there. The original question, paraphrased, "change
the name or not?" becomes superfluous once we agree, possibly vote on,
whether complete control of the mark is something that we want or not.

To avoid situation similar after referendum in one well known state, before
answering any such question, we must have very precise information. E.g what
*exactly* does it mean in practice to have or not to have "complete control of
the mark"? From my very limited perspective I don't see problems with the
current state, so I don't feel need to change. I'm afraid all that financial
and legal issues are far too much virtual for many people here.
The question was raised with particular aims. If we agree on the aims, which
options do we have to reach them? What does it mean practically? I know many
points were repeatedly mentioned repeatedly in the discussion, but still, when
preparing the vote, the question and accompanying materials will have to be
prepared with big care.
