I think it would be very nice to keep a recursive acronym...

if GNU == GNU's Not Unix then

What about: .GNU = GNU's Net Universe
or          .GNU = GNU's Networking Universe
or          .GNU = GNU's Net Utilities
or          .GNU = GNU's Networking Utilities
or          DotGNU = Data Over The GNU Net/Networking Universe

One could play a bit around with 
   Net vs Networking 
or Universe vs Utilities vs Utils
or the "." vs Dot vs Data

What do you think...

This is a good one -- as long as .NET is our main competitor --
but we should use it only in contexts where we address security
risks, privacy risks, verdor lock-in risks, and other risks --
while we should continue to use a positive motto like "DotGNU:
Making the Web work for you" in other contexts.
