If a version of the logo is going to include SignWriting, I think using 
"we" is a very good idea. It both captures the collaborative aspect and, 
for us hearing types, suggests the initial syllable of "wiki". (I have 
no real opinion about what languages to incorporate into the logo, but I 
like those suggestions so far that would allow for some flexibility.)
