What I'm pointing is you have a central choke point and rebuild rights
are not retransmitted as-is to downstream users, you can't even
workaround them (like for firefox) by dropping a few trademarks.

And I don't doubt you intend to be nice with your agreement, but hte
fact there *is* an agreement in any form is a show stopper
