Why does Launchpad allow the creation of projects with "ubuntu" as a part of the project name by normal users?

Asked by Sturm Flut

Anyone can create Launchpad projects with "ubuntu" as part of the project name, giving the project an official aura. See https://launchpad.net/ubuntuphone . Shouldn't this be prevented?

We can't stop people from registering all possible confusing names. "Xubuntu", where X is any character, is reserved, but that's about it.

Can you help with this problem?
