Plymouth does not respect default.plymouth in alternatives system?

For Intel chipsets affected by Bug 1389904
the user sees a garbled, something's-clearly-wrong Plymouth splash
screen at startup and shutdown. I wanted to create and use a very
simple monocolor Plymouth theme that I hoped would look OK.
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Documentation/Plymouth indicates that
Plymouth uses the alternatives system to set the theme that it will use,
and the themes are located at
/lib/plymouth/themes/theme-name/theme-name.plymouth. Then it references
the tutorial that begins at http://brej.org/blog/?p=158 for the details,
except as amended by those two facts.
Rather than plowing through the details of that tutorial, I used this
simple guide for my simple purpose (see section 5 on creating a very
basic theme): http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1149
What I found was that though alternatives reports that my
simple.plymouth is now the default.plymouth, the system ignores that and
continues to boot with the lubuntu-logo.plymouth theme.
Can someone point out where I fell short or went astray? Or how I can
hack the lubuntu-logo theme to achieve what I want? (On the latter, can
I, for instance, simply delete some of the PNG files?)
