Seconded on the green circle, and stating the obvious: we're not  
trying to copy other clients but there's absolutely no reason to  
avoid something *simply* because it's been done elsewhere.  If the  
argument is, 'That's good, but it looks like Client X, in which it  
was also good' then the argument is bad.
