Wouldn't that distract from other messages displayed during startup?
I'd display that at the bottom of the splash screen together with the
URL that pops up when hovering over the image.

Apparently, I don't have the appropriate Arial font installed (I don't
care much about proportional fonts).  With the fonts supplied on my
system it scales to about one fourth of the remaining text.  If the
copyright notice is of any importance here, it should have the same size
as the remainder of the text I think.

BTW, I'd prefer calling the "GNU Emacs" buffer either "*splash-screen*"
or " *splash-screen*".
