Nobody made Michael Acevedo the official artist, but a mailing list vote 
approved his logo as the Apache OpenOffice logo for the 3.4.x series (at 
that time, we believed that the version after 3.4.x would be 4.x). So, 
again: for 3.4 and all official communication in 3.4 the reference logo 
is that one, and not something that is 95% similar to it or that tweaks 
colors/fonts. We must be consistent. This is the reason why we cannot 
use your SVG version now.

But it is understood, as Graham wrote, that this is a temporary 
solution. For future releases we are free to adopt any new logo, having 
a similarity to the current one anywhere between 0% and 100%, and since 
we are not under pressure at the moment we can explore possibilities for 
a full rebranding: logo, site, palette, icons... If we go for a full 
rebranding, it is good to make it coincident with the 4.0 release since 
it would be easier to communicate and less suspicious to users.
