You can also look at it from a practical point of view.

If a logo is decided soon enough, then the whole of the graphics art 
department can get together to finalize and refine. Are we looking for a 
completed graphics package from the logo competition people or we 
looking for a logo concept that approaches that type of quality output 
but willing to put in more effort once the logo is adopted?

Finding a logo concept and refining it as a team effort may in fact 
prove more time/quality efficient. IMHO, a logo should not be discounted 
if it has not been given that polished look because it may be a great 
fit for Mageia regardless.
