-1 from me on that, because in my opinion if we let that text and
explenations away it encourages the imagination of the user to think
about it. Everyboday have a different point of view (freedom of thoughts).

Thats part of https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Name_suggestions_for_Fedora_13

That could be imho a thing for the CD/DVD cover to put on some quote or
a small Textbanner ...

You can put that on to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F13_release_slogan
yourself. Maybe you have more ideas, then you can write them also down.

And also therefor my opinion is to leave the minds open.
You can also have a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F13_Artwork
to have in mind in wich direction the theme(s) will go.
