The death of the community edition?

Mozilla had drafted a policy whereby you could rename "Mozilla Firefox" to things like "Firefox Community Edition, Debian." Community editions were barred from using the copywritten artwork (as Debian has chosen to do). Dozens of community editions are in different Linux and BSD distros. Many "optimized" or customized builds for Windows and other operating systems were built under this same policy.
Is Mozilla now going to go to each of these individually, as they've done with Debian, and tell them that this is no longer an aspect of their trademark policy? Why don't they come out and say exactly what their current policy is & which policies are no longer active? Then, perhaps, all of those other distributions which aren't allowed to call their slightly modified browser "Mozilla Firefox" could get behind a common new name for it.
