I don't think those benefits would apply here.  For one thing, the TSF 
is not a legal entity; it's an abstraction over the Twisted project's 
membership in the SFC, the Software Freedom Conservancy.  Also, I am 
suggesting we need a name specifically for projects *not* a part of the 
Twisted project or the TSF or the SFC, just related to the technology.
