I do agree we don't want to lose sight of the "secure" aspect of PostgreSQL.  One of the more convincing arguments I've made for using PostgreSQL in business cases is its adherence to data integrity.  So it would become:

Fast.  Powerful. Secure.  PostgreSQL.

But it would be nice to get it down to two adjectives.  Maybe:

Powerful.  Secure.  PostgreSQL.

It's almost like the classic "speed, quality, cost: choose 2" problem :-)
