Yep, that's a very good presentation. Not only because it tells lots
about branding but also because it is a great presentation ;-)
The problem is though that it might not be aimed at open source
projects. Here the basis is to have a company in the middle which is to
some extent in control of the brand. They can decide "we only do sports
cars". In an Open Source model everybody is the company and everybody
might do whatever he wants with the product (framework? ;) ).
Thus Focus might be complicated.
So the presentation might say in the open source case:
"It's not what YOU say it is, it's what THEY make out of it"
Thus if there would be a majority who uses Plone as a framework maybe it
is one. But I guess the PSPS sort of suggested that it isn't and instead
is a very flexible product.
So the question here might be what Plone actually stands for.
Some ideas might be Professional, Usability or Flexibility which
spontaneously come to my mind.
BTW, there are tons of great slideshows on slideshare about marketing,
branding, new media and so on.
