Wallpapers, gtk themes and icons are orthogonal. Development on one of 
them does not affect directly the other. Also, different people can work 
on each of them.

Working on gtk themes require knowledge of gtk and some programming 
abilities, icons are a little scary because the work is huge (we need a 
lot of them) so obviously people tend to concentrate on what seems 
easier and with a lower barrier to entry: wallpaper-like images. I 
believe we are not superhumans :p
