And I'd like to pre-filter based on the PRC guidelines.  I've been  
discussing with them, and I've asked that they produce a final set of  
guidelines.  However, the important one for us will be :

"logo should not incorporate Native American images or
existing cultural/religious symbolism.  However, new symbols that
merely evoke a native american theme (such as the feather) are fine."

So I'd like to get rid of the ones that violate this guideline before  
we have the community vote.
