Thanks for the update!  :)

This would solve the copyright side of the issue, since then it would be
possible to relicense the logos under a DFSG-free copyright license (I
personally recommend the Expat a.k.a. MIT license:
http://www.jclark.com/xml/copying.txt).

There's still the trademark side to be addressed, and here the
headscratching begins... what trademark rights have we to grant in
order to make (at least the open use) logo DFSG-free?
This is still to be discussed, AFAIK.
