As already summarized by Helmut, the new logo will be kept. True, the
new logos show a new "era of TYPO3", but it also shows that TYPO3 is
vital and actively developed and maintained.

Thus, I'm personally all for keeping the new logos in the current stable
branches which are TYPO3 CMS 4.5 LTS, 4.6 and 4.7 (and 6.0 as well as
the next major release - of course).
