Our options are open.  Our 'official' selection would most likely be a 
suggestion.  As long as we label one selection as 'official', most vendors 
and individual distributors will use that selection, and the standardization 
will help to give the appearance of a coherent community.  Those who cannot 
use the official artwork would still be able to use simpler labelling.  Not 
everyone will be able to print full-color CD labels, so I don't want to 
prevent them from producing media.

We can discuss how wide we want to open the process.  We will need to have a 
reasonable scope to cover all interests.  In addition to the Artwork team, we 
should at least include the Distribution team and a small selection from the 
Marketing team.  Having the Artwork team select the nominees will make the 
vote a lot less painful, but closing the vote to just the Artwork team may 
leave us with a selection that nobody wants to use.
