Not impossible for the remix lozenge (I LOVE that word!), but they would
have to specifically ask.  Frankly counsel is not eager to offer
additional options, so we're not going to call it out if it's all the
same to Artwork.  We can handle requests on a case by case basis.

The "fedora" word, of course, can only be our approved blue or white for
color treatments.  We should probably also have treatments for a
monochromatic or grayscale situation.
