Hi Ted,

Thank for your feedback.

Today's announcement is a public unveiling. It's the beginning of the
phase of building public support, not the end. Naturally we shared the
logo and other materials with a few people inside and outside W3C in
advance in order to improve our chances of success. There are still
things that need attention (e.g., improving the SVG) but we felt it was
time to go public.
