If you would try to create a wallpaper based on what people want, I'm
worried you might end up with :
a calm and neutral abstract graphic,
that shows an exciting landscape,
a motorcycle just for Iain,
with cute babies and bunnies,
a manga babe,
and that is politically correct

The default artwork of a distribution should be about how that project
wants to be perceived. The preferences of the audience comes into play
only in an indirect way. Especially for a wallpaper, something people
like to change, perhaps just for the sake of changing it.
