Rust is on here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/foundation/trademarks/list/
It inherits the same problem that Firefox and all of the other things on that  
list do, namely that Mozilla's trademark policy tries to go beyond the usual  
trademark realm where it "identifies a product" to include distribution  
restrictions. Distributing it supposed to be realm of copyright, but  
Mozilla's trying to go there via trademark instead. Specifically that exact  
copies must be distributed at no cost (primarily conflicting with freedom #2  
in the Free Software Definition for the making of exact copies.)
