It is my understanding that the PPMC is the governing body of this project.
To me that means they "own" the project.  I don't know how it exactly works
at Adobe, but we have specialists in branding who, I suspect, offer a small
set of choices that some other group of managers, who are not specialists,
choose from.  It is not put out to popular vote among the employees of Adobe
or the public.

IMHO, the PPMC is that set of managers and should make the final decision.
It sounds like we have some folks who understand branding issues commenting
on the submissions.  I think that's enough information for the PPMC to go
with.  A popular vote in these circumstances is not controlled enough.
