I agree. As this is the default theme for new installs, the
DrupalIcon and drupal brand should be very prominent in the
header. The user can then tweak this branding to suit
their requirements.

There could also be a "Powered by Drupal" icon in the footer
which the user may choose to leave alone, even after replacing
the Drupal branding in the header.
