I hope we can share ideas again as for Solar :)

I like clean splash screens and another issue is - we can have same splash in 
KDE too - we don't have so many possibilities to animate it as Plymouth has 
and I'd like to see same splash during whole boot process - from Plymouth, 
through KDM and KSplashX, first boot with final desktop background => 
consistency. I don't know if I will have so much time to do all branding I'd 
like to for KDE (Plasma theme, HTML templates, etc.) but I'd like to try.

And proposed background is warm and fresh for spring release as Solar was cold 
for winter :-)
