That's not too hard; like MSX Player, it could (and probably would) be given a logo if its own. It could work out, just as long as there's pretty clear info on what works and what doesn't.

So that anybody can build its own Z80/TMS9928/AY8912 based computer and call it, let's say, MXS, right?Well, calling it MXS would prolly still infringe on the trademark. That's like starting WacDonald's and expecting not to get sued. The rest of the system you can build, ofcourse. Heck, you just gave a description of every single homecomputer system of the early 80s...

Indeed, Microsoft had not appreciated that a program was called Lindows ...

What about some kid's toys in the late 70s? The name was '0937'. Turn it upside-down and you'd get 'LEGO' in it's original font!
