Heheh, the LICENSE file is a good idea.

As for the entity, I've also seen places where "The XYZ project" is
referenced, possibly together with its online address.

BTW, I don't think there's going to be a doubt about the meaning of
this non-existent entity in the mind of a judge.  Even a jury is
likely to understand what we mean.

No idea.  I never bother.  You are welcome to remove them from the
manpages I wrote; they're just there as a result of LDNS' template.

Good thinking, albeit a somewhat long name ;-)

I'd say make a pragmatic choice now, then tag RC4 and if we decide to
panic over these matters we can still fix them before 1.0.  I doubt
they're worth the attention, really.

Hope this helps,
