I agree with Adrian that watermarks are difficult to remove and sites
should be simple to get up and running in no time but I disagree with
the branding compromise. Druplicon as a site logo will be the first
thing any new site will change so why not keep him smiling and visible
on first install.

+1 for the powered by logo something that should be on every shipped
theme IMHO, although we can all notice similarities, even in
civicspace that this is indeed very drupal, having the powered by will
definitely create more awareness to newcomers.
