I found wording that awkward, and felt it gave the wrong precedence. 
Maybe the best thing to do is put all of the logos on the copyright 
page w/ an explanatory note and not muck up the text with them.

Actually, I usually use \textsc{tex}, \textsc{latex}, \textsc{xetex} &c.

Mostly 'cause this nicely follows how \textsc{unix} is supposed to be 
set (the developers were ``dizzy with the ability to do small caps'' on 
a newly delivered / developed typesetting system). Also because Caps 
and Small Caps is a traditional way to do proper nouns in some European 
typesetting and I think programs should be less important than people. 
It also fits in with my personal preference for using small caps for 
acronyms which can be pronounced (\textsc{nasa}) and using 
three-quarter caps for things like NSA, FBI, &c.
