The thing is, the trafic on the marketing-public mailing list rather suggests that the names will change once FB reaches 1.0, so I think the branding document is still "right", it's just the timeframe that's wrong (where have we heard that before). As far as I can tell, the Foundation contacted the Firebird db people after all the fuss died down to see if they could reach some agreement with the names. It seems that wasn't possible, so instead the renaming will go on as planned. Bart was asking for name suggestions on the list (quite a while ago, I don't think any more are needed at this stage), and Mozilla Browser was by far the most popular idea.

I could be wrong of course.
