I think a package for an alternate theme should change: GRUB splash,

Please don't. This is the kind of heavy-handed intervention that makes
users mad.

But only it the user install the rpm by himself. Otherwise why use rpm at all? Just provide a gallery with wallpapers and we are set.

What you can do is create aliases with names like "default" and change
what they point at from release to release. Meaning that users who
accepted to use distro defaults will get the changes, and others won't
have their loved custom setup stepped on.

For example I used DNA wallpaper and it changed to balloons recently. I
could get mad - I didn't select "default wallpaper" in the list but "DNA
wallpaper", it shouldn't have changed at the whim of the Desktop team.

What other way to you see to provide alternate graphics for GRUB and RHGB?
Those can be changed only by overwriting the default and making GDM and wallpaper fit may be seen as a move for consistency.
Remember, this is about a package the user consciously select and install.
