Hi Jonathan, I'm one of the Kubuntu User that have writing the email.
I understand your reasons and I'm (we are) happy to use upstream KDE 
artwork, Nuno and Co. do a great work.
But the only thing meaningless (IMHO) is the incoherence between the  
Playmouth theme and KDM\KDE theme.
I think that see two different themes (Playmout -> KDM) during the boot 
procedure is bad and gives an idea of approximation and unprofessional.
If Kubuntu (and I agree) wants have the same KDE artwork, can be a good idea 
to use the same theme (or color scheme) of KDM/KDE also for Playmouth.
I think with this little trick we can make a look very rock and coherent.

Is not possible with a system notification like for flash, mp3, etc... ?

Right! But why not use another folder? Example, the Home directory instead 
Desktop ?

Thank you,
