But the final release is already declared gold, it's too late for that.

Really, the only thing we can do here is to keep the wallpaper that ships on 
our current ISOs. I don't see it as being "unfinished" or "broken". In fact, 
the feedback from our users was very positive. And even if it were unfinished, 
the deadline for finishing it would have been the Final Change Deadline on
May 9.

I fully agree with you that such a change is not acceptable for a 0-day

I am sorry to disappoint you, but the Design Team is bound by the same 
freezes as the rest of the distribution. In addition, if I look at the 
feedback from Martin and María (tatica), I'm not convinced that the Design 
Team as a whole is backing the proposed change, either.

(FWIW, I'm also technically a Design Team member, though I haven't actively 
worked on anything design/artwork-related for several Fedora releases now, 
Jaroslav was the one doing the recent KDM and KSplash themes.)
