Something I got into a bit of a snit about the last time this issue came up was whether the mere presence of a particular city's name, combined with a brand name, satisfied the requirements. That is to say (and this is not the example that annoyed me), "home of the Durham Bulls" should not be acceptable, even though there's only one Durham that would fit that description, and I agree with that judgment.
