No worries, it's always good to have (constructive) feedback :-)

Oh, I fully agree with that. My, let's say, "cultural" point is that I
don't see us doing that, ever. Simply because using restricted content
is something we viscerally don't like. So, even if rationally we see
reasons to use the restricted logo somewhere, I don't see it us doing
and sticking to it. But again, if we still consider something
potentially useful to do, let's keep the possibility --- we'll see a few
years from now what happens...

Given the patch seems quite consensual, and appreciated from both
"camps" in this discussion, I've just applied it. It will go live at the
next website rebuild.  Wording improvements are appreciated, as usual.

As I've forgotten to do so in the initial patch proposal, I should give
credit to Ian Jackson for proposing the entirely appropriate "restricted
logo" name, during an IRC conversation: thanks Ian!
