It won't be a trademark; it could be a conformance mark,
and you could obligate its use through a conformance
suite (pass the test and you get to use the mark).
Unfortunately, unless you have a named entity to
register it, it won't have a firm status and
there is no obligation to respect it.
Anything you use as a prefix there (openSource, org, etc)
will have a competitor for its use. That is all that Dare

Single source? Really?
Standards: an ethical way for big companies to
compete with each other until all competitors but
one withdraw from the market; proprietary is faster
but the whining is unbearable.
