Using none means altering the documentation to later include one. It seems simpler to have a reference to a placeholder logo so, at most, the author need only change the image source URL upon acceptance.

Having said that, using no logo or only one created by the author, nicely sidesteps this whole discussion!

Maybe the template should reference an image that includes nothing but "Your logo here."
