I think the logo will be used to identify products that use "MIDI" and "the Web", and for that I would be inclined to suggest both words be in the logo.

It might be possible to say those things using images instead of words, but personally I don't think Midiappy succeeds at that, because the only "MIDI" in the image is his (her?) tiny hands, which is not obvious.

I'd mentioned that before.  Personally, I love Midiappy as Web MIDI mascot (he's one of the few stickers on my laptop) - however, as a logo to be incorporated into software, he doesn't work as well.  Logos for support typically need to be unobtrusive, work in black and white, and be scalable down to a small size but still recognizable - like the MIDI logo itself.

FYI in addition, a specialist of Web MIDI in Japan has created the character called "MIDIappy" 2 years ago. He is quite respected from Web developers and the industry.
