Because it is not distributed in Debian 'main' ? Because I can not think
of any occurence where it would hurt to just replace it with another
logo? Because it is a god damn logo?

Why _is_ it different then software?
I tried to discuss this at the LDP mailing list before, but
I got no satisfying answers. Why do some documentation authors who
write their documentation about and with Free Software think that
_their_ work is so much better, sacred, whatever, than the software they
use? I would really be glad to see one good answer to this...

Yeah, why is it different?

And what has this to do with -devel? Go to -legal, -doc or -project.
