Is there a problem with choosing a different font, and keeping the word Debian?
No there isn't. This solves the DFSG problem. It is done for instance
in spacefun-splash.svg. I didn't keep the word Debian in
spacefun-grub-widescreen.png as it has been already deleted in
spacefun-grub.png and the splashy pictures and I thought the changes
should be consistent.
In some other pictures I just used the swirl and didn't change the
font of the word Debian. Because I think that Debian users are used to
see the word Debian in the official Poppl Laudation Condensed font
(for instance on debian.org). So using a different font might look
unofficial and like a "fake" to them.
The swirl on the other hand is our official symbol and is well known
to our users. So I think it could be a good idea to use the swirl more
often and the word Debian less often in the artwork included in Debian.
Of course this could be changed, if everybody wants that.
