This is the latest report on the topic I like to discuss:
Other similar reports can be found on flyspray (I gave few links in
comments to that report already) and forums.

I honestly don't care much of having custom Arch-style splash screens,
wallpapers, themes, OS identification in browsers etc. in our
I just want it to be *consistent*.
There are few possibilities:
1) do not add customize packages to wear Arch name on them (as in
Gnome packages now)
2) provide splashs/wallpapers/themes/etc. in packages but do not
enable them by default (as in Xfce packages now)
3) provide splashs/wallpapers/themes/etc. in packages and hardcode or
enable them by default (as in KDE packages and OOo now).
Note that we already force arch-menus installed on every of those DEs.
Also should decide if we want to patch Firefox, Seamonkey, Epiphany,
Konqueror, Dillo (is it possible to patch Opera's default config files
