Strictly speaking, being open-source doesn't appear in my list at all.
It would emphasize access to source code, while Free Software emphasizes
the 4 software freedoms. Free Software as such only appears in the list
Short of adding a gnu, all that can be done graphically is hinting at
freedom and openness as such, anyway.
