It doesn't have to be default. I wouldn't make it default either.

That's the point of wallpapers being tied into a release theme/name. I
don't see an issue with this.

Do *not* care about default. (have you read the list lately? :)) Just

For Studio, I require 2560x1600 (16x10) where I can. I'd like to see
that. Maybe a 1600x1200 (4:3) as well.
