Yeah I think it would work good, that way when you saw the companies logo as the avatar you would know without reading anything else that the Dev worked for or owned that company, sometimes Dev's post in other games threads and for people who don't read carefully they can become easily confused, but this would help to solve that because if I.E. it were a Gameloft game and an EA Dev posted in that thread we would know that the EA Dev wasn't a Dev for that game. Obviously we aren't going to see that exact scenario, but it could happen with two Indie Devs.
It would also be cool for Dev's just because they would get to show their logo and I think it would be well accepted on the forum.
