As I am the co-author of the bootsplash, I will agree :p

The reason for using the usplash is that it works on almost all computers 
whereas the bootsplash will revert to the console when anything fails, which 
happens a lot on newer computers (intel chips are a real problem).

I am pretty uncertain as to whether the usplash can/will be made to do more 
colors for edgy, so I would not hold my breath on that.
