Developer releases have NO "professional" representation whatsoever. This is
not a marketing or representative issue at all.

We have a theme for each release. This one is pretty focused, and actually
provides far more "offensive" potential than the name chosen for the release
just past.

I do not think adding more steps to the release process, for something that
is at best unimportant and silly, makes much sense at all. It sounds like a
massive overcompensation for one release name that tickled your interest.

By the way, Swedish is offensive in some parts of Australia, particularly
references to small girls who live with monkeys.
