Right now, I disagree with this proposal (I’d vote -1 if it were a vote) since 
it doesn’t currently address what happens to the other ways of changing the 
logo and it adds yet another way on top of the existing ones, making the 
situation even more complex…

So for me we need to:
1) Rationalize the change of logo better in the proposal and explain what 
happens to the other places and explain in the proposal why the user would use 
one or the other of the ways. Do some ways get deprecated or not either?

it create a new skin? Does it modifies the DefaultSkin page and attach a logo 
to it? Does it modifies the currently selected Color Theme and adds a logo to 
it? Does it do something else?

I also need some answers to my questions asked above such as "What does it mean 
“at wiki or page level”? How do you do that? Using a custom skin? Using a color
