I think Julian's language is exactly right.  I think it is pretty silly to do 
anything to resist use of the name, since it makes it more effort to get the 
document, but difficult in the form of hassle.  Designing to create hassle is 
bad design, except for stairway exits at the ground level (the hassle is to make 
it harder to keep going down.)
