I was having reservations about using the MIDI logo font, because the 
W3C logo terms and conditions seem to allow people to copy bits of the 
logo and use them wherever they like -- which would undermine the 
integrity of the MIDI logo itself. Hopefully that problem can be solved 
in the small print...

I personally don't like the orange colour of the HTML5 logo, and I think 
the word WEB should be more prominent -- for emphasis on MMA packaging. 
I also think it might be a good idea to mention the W3C itself -- "for 
advertising purposes".
The W3C terms and conditions say (I think) that the logo colours can be 
changed. Such a logo could be provided in various default versions... 
Here's one in black on W3C blue (from the XHTML 1.1 logo).

I think it looks a bit black. An outline font or a different colour 
(e.g. a bright blue) for "WEB MIDI" might help. Colours could be 
different in print and on screen...

Sorry, but I don't have any experience with SVG editors...

best,
James
