This is a good point!  I did a search for "infinity freedom voice" and
also got no page saying those are official slogans. :-\

This really needs a page on the wiki, like Marketing/Slogans.
Unfortunately I'm stranded at a hotel where the network is horrible.
(The search I just did?  Took 7.5 minutes, whereas it normally takes
only a few seconds.)  I'm forwarding this to f-marketing-l where we can
mark it as an action item in our next meeting.
