While I agree with you on the printing issue, I believe that we can
use separate logos for web use (perhaps with gradients, depending on
what others think) and another logo for printing. After all, one can
argue that any colours apart from greyscale ones are non-optimal for
printing as well, but that will not stop anyone from making a
colourful logo.
