My understanding is that trademarks don't protect functional interfaces,
so in the absence of legal advice to the contrary we certainly shouldn't
be taking trademarks into account here. If the libreoffice maintainers
aren't enthusiastic about removing their existing aliases, it's probably
going to have to be resolved as a policy issue via FESCO.
FESCo just approved the feature with the provision that LibreOffice
aliases won't change (and that there will be agreement on how to solve
conflicts). The aliases discussed involved oowriter, oocalc...; the
alias wasn't mentioned but it's probably not worth to
investigate it further at the moment; the technical issue is over
"soffice" and "unopkg", and this one should be addressed first.
