Well, and would be the target of the spin? 

Yep, it does not need to be named after our team, but 'design' covers
wider audience are than just 'art', although it's still probably a
little limited. Really, depending on the audience we'll target it at, we
might want to have
      * good support for devices like scanners, printers, cameras, wacom
        tablets, ...
      * graphics editors (gimp, inkscape, ...)
      * photo management tools
      * decent audio software (recording, editing)
      * decent video software (      --||--      , screen-casting)
      * burning software (to burn your audio CDs, videos, photos)
      * desktop publishing/typesetting software (inkscape, scribus, OOo,
        TeX, ...)
      * web-design related software (partly overlaps with graphics
      * other multimedia management
      * various utilities like ImageMagick
      * content (brushes, wallpapers, showcase window/widget themes,
        templates, showcase icon themes, palettes, clip-art, ...)

If we included most of this list, the best name would probably be
something like Fedora Creativity Spin XD
