Actually, I doubt that mysql is that restrictive. They will happily list
any company (e.g. Google) in which someone somewhere in the company is
using it, regardless of whether or not they have paid a license.

No, they can't. We can't create a product called "Orakle", but we can
certainly talk about the company Oracle(tm) all we want. I don't see
the big deal with posting such a list: if a company does not want to
be on it, they can send us an email and we'd more than likely comply.
