I would politely ask them not to use it and a courteous person would comply.

I don't. If you have been following this entire exchange, you will know
that I am not espousing that anyone work outside of the CoA if they want
HERALDRY.  If what they want to display is some sort of other art, then no
one can stop them.

Exactly what we have been trying to say, Stefan.  I think you have probably
missed the point of what Savian and I are trying to say.
