This is an old issue... until W3C don't create a "claim verification
service" (and who will pay for this) there is no possibility: I don't
think that W3C staff has also time to check, and go ahead wrong
There could be a solution: make the buttons as ("tm"), so the incorrect
use is illegal use of trademark and W3C can request damage :)
