i would rather define: 
it should be available in a vector-based format - scalable 
(base for any other format no matter how big or small)
.... in addition it should be still recognisable at 16 x 16 px 
(8x8 is too small for anything nowadays... on my 155dpi screen i see 
it actually as dot :) )

 | 3) Should be representable in 2 colours.

if we want to be professional, lets be. we should define our own 
colour palette and stick to it. the logo should be available in one 
bright coloured version and one dark one (that is i think you mean 
with "2 colours")

 | of the current logo)?

if we think over the whole concept, then no, it should be free. either 
we make it open to anything, or we are just looking for a derivate of 
the one we have.

lucky us, we are not a big company that has to change all the 
letter-headings, the signs and all the printed material ;) ... i know 
of banks, that spent multiple milions of CHF to change their logo 
worldwide ;)

let the competition begin!
