This is true, of course; but it does not address what is under discussion

It is also normal for partnership agreements to include specifications of
how those mentions are carried out to meet certain objectives, while also
avoiding problems for both parties. With nearly every one of my clients,
this is specified by either an informal or a formal contract, prior to the
announcement or commencement of the project.

Regrettably, it is also rather normal for the Wikimedia Foundation to pay
insufficient attention to such arrangements. This leaves volunteers in the
position of cleaning up the mess, and sometimes, of playing the role of the
"bad guy" whose image suffers from telling somebody that they can't have
what they want.
