I do not think we want to include a lot of photographic backgrounds 
inside the distro anyway.

This is entirely her original work, so I expect Diana may relicense it 
at will, you have only to persuade her hard enough.

If I would take I wild guess, I would suggest making background channels 
(http://www.gnome.org/~clarkbw/blog/GNOME/background_channels) work, 
this certainly will convince a lot of people (maybe even Diana) to 
release background images with a license compatible with those channels.
