These are exceptions.  I know that there are some.  I wouldn't call
that IBM a logo, but it's a recognizable letterset.  The Sun logo
is different.  Like Ean's synthesized DG it consists of letters but
is designed in a artificial (might be the wrong word) fashion which
judges it as logo.

Nontheless, I might not be precise in this case.  My idea behind this
paragraph was to remove all these "[Penguin]Debian", "Debia[G]n[U]"
and stuff which only consist of a rendered and ordered set of letters.
