K/D/H look too close to the logo for the SyFy (née Sci-Fi) TV channel.

I'm not sure what the orbiting bodies symbolize - is the centre Illumos/Sun, and is the smaller body us? Why are we smaller? We're Illumos + stuff, ie bigger. More of a solar system, though that's perhaps a bit over subtle for a logo!

Does text in the logo make it hard to localize? I'd have thought so, but I don't know if that's a problem.

So I guess I'll vote for L for now, but I think we need to develop a better one.
