Personally, I would want to quantify how much the "Linux Australia" brand
is worth before I made any decision.

If it was found to be valuable, I would think about other options.

For example, when you think of Amazon do you think of an online bookshop,
cloud compute or building tablets?

In Korea, Samsung builds apartments and operates funeral homes and uses the
Samsung name prominently:

I suggest that the place to start is to understand how much the brand is
worth as a pre-requisite.
