    However, in my opinion there would be significant "practical harm"
    created by the *addition* of company logos and trademarked symbols. We
    would certainly see a constant stream of requests to add such characters
    to the standard, as all those companies would quickly get on the
    bandwagon and view it as a great source of free advertising and
    legitimacy. I never under-estimate the ability of corporations to find
    new ways of getting their names and logos in front of more eyes!
