Is ther any licensing issue using a Open license font? Was there any
license issue in the past to use a closed source license, if so where
is this clearance? Is there an advantage of having our own proprietary
font (developed in-house).

Do they need to reflect the same attitudes as the one shown on the wiki?
global
open
transparent
accessible
clean
strong...?

Do we want to be more web-enabled, cloud, feather, social? (this from
other conversations about making OO more social)

Finally is there a template of proposals like:
- font
- visual element
- logo
- symbol
- Application logo
- Module logo (writer, calc, impress...)
- Mime-logo (odt, ods, odp, odg..)
- Design guidelines
