A interesting idea but not one I like. A variation of the Fedora logo 
would have the same protections as the logo itself and leads to the same 
issues we are trying to avoid by suggesting the use of a mascot that 
lends itself to artistic freedoms and creative uses. Keep the mascot 
completely separate from the logo.
