What exactly? First they changed the metacity and GTK themes from Nodoka
to Clearlooks and they will continue to use upstream successors of these
in gnome-shell. Now they switch the wallpaper. What inside the GNOME
desktop remains visibly Fedora - except the Fedora icon in the menu and
perhaps the screensaver?

Note that I'm not talking about plymouth, I'm only talking about the
GNOME desktop/shell.
