While I don't speak for the Foundation, they already have a fairly
decent policy addressing this:

I believe this really only applies to use outside of Gentoo, and not
internal use.  Whether a service like a Discord site falls under
internal use probably depends on the degree to which they are
completely subject to Council/Trustees/etc, and the social contract
and code of conduct as enacted by those bodies.

For non-internal use the name/logo guidelines already have
requirements around reputation and code of conduct.  You can't just
call yourself "Gentoo" and do whatever you want (not that I'm implying
that this is what any particular site is doing - I haven't even seen
the discord).
