Is it weird / bad karma to call this "Lotus"?

You could make an example application called "Notes" with Lotus.

Or a spreadsheet and call it "123"...

Or even worse - a webmail app called "cc:Mail".

Considering that IBM owns the trademark for "Lotus" for software products, I suspect there will an issue with that at some point.
