I don't know if removing them is the right course of action, or if the
size limit should be imposed on the contributor. Postage stamp
designers do not do their work on a postage stamp sized canvas.
Having the original work in a large file is preferable because it can
be scaled down. In scaling up a small file we will not be able to
provide missing detail. Trimming a contribution to 30k should be done
by software. If a scaled down logo loses too much information, we
probably shouldn't adopt it.
Yes, we must have the large original.
But voters MUST be able to see that the design is viable at the final
size. If size reduction & data compression turns the winning design into
a blurry mess -- what then?
