Being a friend and colleague of Jim Domke I can tell you that making 
bags is not fun. He grew very tired dealing with suppliers of canvas, 
snaps, hooks, and then there was the sewing it all together.
Believe me, LUG agreeing on one design would be the easy part. <g>
I suspect the patch idea might be most workable. It could say 
something like, "This bag was not custom designed by LUG!" Then you 
sew it on whatever you want.
[BTW, if anybody really wants a custom bag, I was in the workshop of 
a NYC bicycle messenger bag maker, and they said they could make up 
any bag I wanted. I could dig up the name, given some time.]
