My personal recommendation is using the 3-clause BSD license (which forbids
using W3C's name to promote or endorse derivatives without express written
consent) together with a trademark policy that protects "CSS Conformance Test"
and similar. Our test suite build systems can automatically alter the test
titles to add or remove the trade marks for use on W3C vs. use elsewhere.
