I spotted on SO that some of the tags have company icons embedded within them:

enter image description here

Should we not have similar ones for Esri, Mapinfo, Mapserver, etc?

If so:
- would we need permission from the vendors?
- who controls which ones have icons and which ones dont 'deserve' them. (Has to have >200 occurrences?)

These are paid advertisements, which we are not currently pursuing on SE 2.0 sites outside of Stack Overflow, Server Fault, and sometimes Super User.
