There are two problems:
- schedule: even if the selection of the release name was moved near to 
the development cycle start trying to help the Art team, it still was 
quite late;
- for F9 we really tried such a tie, integrating sulphur crystals in the 
graphics, but the feed-back was negative so we took it down at the last 
minute. You can't link a good theme with any name (Cambridge is also 
tough from this point of view - use a stylised version of the 
university? a science lab? - not many options).
