Excellent points!

I guess it would be possible as long as it doesn't change the initial
concept in a way that the artwork end up being something different than
that published for the major release in first place. Consider that the
artwork chosen must be applied to different visual manifestations
(e.g., distribution, web sites, promotion stuff, etc.) to reach a
consistent look among them. If we change it too often its
propagation may be harder to maintain.
