I'd have to ask a bit around the school (I'm not back yet), but my gut
is that this sounds good. Having a bit of a flag serves both to anchor
students (who might more easily see the "foreign space" as part of
their own) as well as anchor readers from the institution who might
not be particularly tech-savvy ("Hey! This is related to me!").

I agree that "brand neutrality" within TOS is a Good Thing(tm), but I
like the idea of trying to explore this compromise. I'm +1 on
exploring this, and will be back from OSCON/wedding travel Wednesday
and be able to engage a bit more (for a few days) -- then, it is time
for a Real Vacation(tm).
