To be honest, I quite like the ident. It reminds me of the 2001-2007 idents which for me pip the 1991 set to the post as my favourite set of idents. Also on the issue of the 1991 '2' being purely an object with no personalty, the stings would beg to differ as would the swan, Dalek etc. idents.
These are just likenesses formed by a fixed shape 2. There's a difference.
I agree this would work better alongside the yellow idents, which for me always felt like cheap imitations.
