Boris Tursky, in a private email, sums it up:

multilevel voting could solve it, level 1 defines winning concept,
level 2 defines the most liked variant of it, in terms of: "if you
vote for this concept, which variant do you like most?".

I am not so keen on the second level as we seem to all agree
that we should allow minor modifications to the winning logo.
I am highly in favor of a post review which allows us to
suggest tweaks and corections. I agree with Rob Stewart that
we should officially allow post-selection alterations, following
a consensus here in the boost list. For that matter, I decided
to make the variant optional. I think its purpose is to help us
decide which variant to focus our eyes on, post selection.

I'm always open to suggestions and objections.
