Keep in mind that this particular logo is not the WMF logo, and it was
explicitly designed for use when the community needed to use a logo that
was to be used in places where the main WMF logo could not be used
because it would even violate fair use principles. There are very
legitimate fair use situations where the WMF can be used without
explicit permission of the WMF. Just as logos of other organizations
can also be used under the terms of fair use. And I'm not talking
within just Wikimedia projects either.
