If my opinion counts, and if a logo must be used (*grumble*) then I
would definitely prefer it to be 100% white. Personally, I don't see a
need for graphical icons in the framebuffer, but if they're going to be
used, it should be as subtle as possible.
All of the new logos are now available at http://www.archlinux.org/art/,
including an all-white version.
