If you were planning an app about feral dust, forget it!

Hi Guys, I am preping a new app to be loaded on Itunes Connect and I got the strangest message. This app is about environmental issues and one of the many features is to report dust (from construction sites) and feral animals issues. When updating my description I got the following message: "The following are not recommended for use in this field: dust, feral. Your app may be rejected if you use these terms." No big deal really but it got me thinking - what could possibly justify such a restriction? Does "feral" and "dust" have other meanings that nobody warned me about ;) Farcat

Thanks @Bonzo, looks like a copyright issue then. Still strange but I guess they have their reasons. I'll just use synonyms for now as the client is on a tight schedule and I don't want to risk a rejection. Cheers, Farcat
