I am totally ok with them removing the Druplicon after the install. In 
fact I used to complain if somebody didn't replace the favicon with one 
of his own. The point it to show branding to the guy who installs the CMS.

It is also not difficult to replace the logo, you only need to upload a 
new one.

I won't mind a html block which has such a banner.
