That's huge overkill - a bazooka solution that (as noted) takes out the
kubuntu-desktop metapackage as collateral damage, potentially making
upgrades harder.

There's something exactly like that; and it's the right way to solve
this problem. Usplash uses the alternatives system to allow you to pick
which of several equivalents to use if you've got more than one
installed. The brown Ubuntu logo is always installed, so the kubuntu and
xubuntu ones install as a higher priority to they override it on their
respective systems. If you do:

sudo update-alternatives --config usplash-artwork.so

You'll get a nice menu to choose which one you want, and the setting
will persist through upgrades. Once you've chosen you'll need to do the 

sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-`uname -r`

thing to actually build your new choice into the initramfs. Also see:
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/USplashCustomizationHowto> for instructions on
making your own splash image, but note that that page doesn't mention
the alternatives system (yet - I'll fix that in a mo).
