I agree with the latter; the software submitted to Debian has grown to
include a lot of non-program software of excellent quality, including
images from talented pixel-slingers.

But getting submissions of good logos wasn't my concern.

My reason for seeing the current logo as difficult to change is that I
am doubtful the Debian project would look favourably on a call for
choosing a new logo, especially in light of the seemingly interminable
and painful process that led to choosing the current one.

But that pessimism could well be unfounded; perhaps the experience of
that process has taught us something more constructive than “avoid doing
anything like that again”. Feel free to rally the appropriate people for
changing the logo if you think it can be done.
