I don't think a trademark can be put within the code, since these are different kinds of IP, obviously regional legislation may vary. But google may have licensed the trademark in a single "package" with the code and might not be able to revoke that license now, ok, i get it.

If the situation is so caotic that each android device ever made has its own branch, than all the more reason the eagerly await an intel valley view phone.
