I very much doubt that the Foundation would be happy with having the WMF
logo used in any way which may suggest that Commons photographers are in
anyway represent the Foundation. The Foundation have been cautious about the
Wikinews accreditation process for this very same reason. They want to
minimise the risk of exposing the WMF to legal repercussions.
In response to the difficulty faced with Wikinews accreditation, a new
organisation, seperate from the WMF, has been proposed named the
"CollabMediaNet" at ttp://www.collabmedia.net
which might be of interest
Anyway, to be honest, I'm struggling to think of situations where a Commons
ID would be appropriate. I'll take a look at the thread on the Commons list
though to see if that helps me.

On the Commons list, there is a thread about creating
photographers to help with admission to museums for photos. How would I get
Foundation permission to use the WMF logo on the cards?
