Not true exactly. Supplemental wallpapers are all in a big single
package (one per release). If you're gonna ship "top-15" it's
definitely gonna be a problem.

In order for the package not to break users' set-ups during upgrades
we would need each of the top-15 wallpapers in a single package which
would then the top-15 one require so that the package would stay and
new ones would be pulled in. But then the wallpaper poll would keep
growing with each update...

Next to impossible for desktop/cinnamon, mate or kde, unless you choose
pngs/jpegs directly instead of the provided xml/desktop files with
proper descriptions (and updates filenames, should they change),
possible for xfce/lxde.
