A package can install alternative ressources, provide documentation or a
script to switch to those resources (and back), but you don't ever do the
switch by default. The user/admin is in charge, not the package,
separation of installation and configuration is a basic Fedora rule.
Installing KDE does not kill GNOME, installing a new GNOME theme package
does not kill other GNOME themes, apps do not fill the desktop with icons
because they're so important they deserve a place there, we can have
several OS localizations on the same system, etc

The user installed my package therefore I own the system is plain rude. If
RHBG and GRUB have no theming provision that's too bad, you'll have to
fill RFEs and wait, it's still better than alienating users with
high-handed takeovers.
