I don't think the connotations are that bad, unless you're catholic.
According to the OED, heresy is "an opinion or doctrine ... at
variance with those generally accepted as authoritative."  Which
describes Seaside perfectly.

There's already a fair amount of branding around Seaside as "the
heretical web framework" because of talks I've given at O'Reilly
conferences.  So, now that I think of it, having a slogan around
heresy seems like a great idea.  Anyone have any ideas?
