No. Your statement would be correct if Beastie were losing his status
as the mascot. Beastie is retaining his status as the mascot.

FreeBSD has a powerful, serious, professional side that Beastie does not
express well. I think a new logo, in addition to having Beastie as a
mascot, would help create an image for FreeBSD that is more complete
and accurate. A symbol should never become more important than the
object/concept/principle it symbolizes.
All religious and Political Correctness issues aside, do you have any
objections to a more complete and accurate image for FreeBSD?
