good idea... I went ahead and created an example, applying your
suggestions to the "old" logo:

Is that what you had in mind? :) Should look even better with a new logo.

There may be a catch, though... In docs based on BoostBook and
QuickBook, the html section containing the logo is generated
automatically (in boostbook/xsl/navbar.xsl, AFAICT). There isn't an
indicator for the release status of a given library which would allow
selection among various logos (is there?). I think we need to
establish a clear set of possible states for the release status
(unsubmitted|candidate|approved|etc...), so that this information can be
easily expressed and then consistently used by QuickBook and BoostBook.
I would also suggest that the "default" be something other than
approved... ;)
