As an idea, that sounds both so cheap and so meta at the same time.
Same thing popped into my mind more than 18 months before Lucasfilm was even sold.

The fade MUST NOT be abandoned! They could dissolve the Lucasfilm logo into the span of an arched bridge (or some other arched object). Film it with a mountain behind and...voilà, problem solved. Just send the cameras to Switzerland, where there are plenty of places to chose from!
