And if that's enough for font vendors, and they're happy to license the use if you put a paperclip on the door, what's wrong with putting a paperclip on the door?

At any rate, I don't think it's a paperclip.  It's a "no trespassing" sign.  Or a "welcome all visitors" sign, or a "no soliciting" sign, depending on usage.  Those are important, IMO.
