Need to be able to specify where the trademark symbols are displayed (header and/or footer), and which symbol is displayed (if any): ® or TM.

Looks like legal isn't budging. The best we can get is removing the ® from the header, but not the footer, which would require having two separate configuration variables (which would be rather confusing for 3rd party users). I'm going to put this card back in Needs Analysis for now.
@kaldari: Most 3rd party users (it's not based on some data, just a feeling) doesn't use any trademark or anything in the name, so maybe we can use the actual config var for header and footer and introduce a new one, which defaults to the value of the old one (or null) and use it only, if it is set in LocalSettings.php? :)
Here's my latest idea... No trademark in the header. The trademark in the footer will be a text trademark symbol controlled by the $wgMFTrademarkSitename global variable. The potential variable values will be:
- false/null - no trademark symbol
- registered - ®
- unregistered - ™
- true (for backwards compat) - ™
Since I doubt anyone using Office Wiki is likely to infringe our trademarks, it should probably just be set to $wgMFTrademarkSitename = false. The ® isn't legally required. It's just a way to argue that we enforce our trademarks if we have to take someone to court.
