Hm, I don't think that this is confusing. People remember the logo and
think of the X-ish Wiktionary, and then they remember another logo and
think of the Y-ish Wiktionary. Where is the problem? ;o) There is a
general Wiktionary logo which is used to represent Wiktionary in toto.
But I think every language version of Wiktionary (the same for other
projects of course) should be free in chosing another logo just for
themselves which then represents just the Z-ish Wiktionary and no
other one.
