Yeh, unfortunately trademark law is really rough and it's hard for a lot
of FLOSS projects to open their trademarks without also opening
themselves to abuse. :(

I think as long as you correct the logo usage issue, it shouldn't be a
problem at all. The issue that concerns me about the wallpaper as
currently design is that there is a missing bubble that is supposed to
encapsulate the Fedora logomark's f and infinity symbol. I think the
stripe effect would be okay if applied to the full logomark. 

If you're up for it and can work that bubble back into the logo so it
meets the logo usage guidelines, send the design to
logo at fedoraproject.org for official approval.
