I see what you're getting at there, but obviously if chosen the logo would be seen by people who're unaware of your explanation of the analogy, and so there's a risk they'd see a more literal link with a particular political movement. That could cause some awkwardness in getting Perl 6 accepted by those with different political persuasions. Perl 6 has no political views (well, outside the narrow field of programming language design, which isn't considered a field of politics by most major parties), so it wouldn't be beneficial to give the perception of any poliical links, even inadvertently.
